The judge in the doomsday mom case has disqualified himself after the defense exercised its right to kick him off. Lori Vallow’s attorneys did not provide a reason for wanting Madison County, Idaho, Magistrate Judge Farren Eddins removed; each side in every criminal case is entitled to one disqualification without cause. Eddins revealed during a hearing on Friday that he discussed the matter with Vallow’s attorneys and prosecutors in a teleconference on Thursday, but provided no details. Vallow, the doomsday-obsessed wife of an author of apocalyptic novels, has refused to cooperate with the search for her two children missing since September. She is being held in lieu of $1 million bail on charges of child desertion, contempt of court, and promotion of a criminal act.
