CLARK COUNTY (WAOW) - We have an update on a home invasion and beating investigation in Clark County.
The Clark County clerk of courts tells Newsline 9 the judge in this case is stepping down.
That's because the defendant, Alexander Lee, is the son of Assistant District Attorney, Richard Lewis.
Lee faces five charges, including aggravated battery and burglary.
Investigators say he entered a Clark County home and beat a man.
A special prosecutor was brought in and Judge Jon Counsell recused himself from the case.
A new judge will be assigned.
Lee is in jail on a $100,000 cash bond and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing March 2nd.
Cool and bright Wednesday. Light snow likely Thursday night. A storm may hit Saturday.
