Lawyer wants attorney general removed from Missouri murder case

A Missouri man whose murder conviction was thrown out this month by the state Supreme Court is asking the court to disqualify the attorney general’s office from pursuing a new trial. Any decision to retry Mark Woodworth in the 1990 killing of a woman near Chillicothe, Mo., should be made by an independent prosecutor or the current county prosecutor, attorney Robert Ramsey argued in court documents filed Tuesday on Woodworth’s behalf.
