Guam - Superior Court Presiding Judge Alberto Lamorena has recused himself from the criminal case against Alex Castro. Clerks say the case is waiting to be reassigned to another judge.
Castro posted $20,000 bail and pleaded not guilty to charges of robbery, felonious restraint, aggravated assault and possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony. Nicholas Brown also faces the same charges and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 17. The two men are accused of tying a man up and beating him repeatedly.
Castro also faces aggravated assault charges for allegedly assaulting a man with a fire extinguisher at a Tumon club.
