HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio judge appointed to consider dismissing charges in a toddler’s fatal beating has recused himself after defense objections.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports (https://bit.ly/1Sq43lb ) Butler County Common Pleas Judge Michael Oster said at a hearing Monday that his appointment to hear the motion in Bradley Young’s case was opposed.

Young’s attorneys want the charges dismissed because they say Young’s constitutional rights were violated when phone calls to his attorney from jail were recorded. Young has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges in 2-year-old Kinsley Kinner’s death.

Defense attorney Frank Schiavone III says the state Supreme Court should appoint a judge to hear the motion. He declined to say why he opposed Oster.

Schiavone also plans to ask the new judge to “address” the appointment of a special prosecutor.
