(KSL News) -- A new development in the Kingston custody case as the juvenile court judge has recused himself.

This comes after the Utah Attorney General's Office filed a motion requesting that Judge Andrew Valdez dismiss himself from the case.

In April, Valdez's son, Tito, was arrested for disorderly conduct after a protest outside the courthouse. The attorney general's office was concerned because witnesses in that case also are members of the Kingston clan.
