The judge presiding over the murder case of former New England Patriots tight-end Aaron Hernandez refused to step down herself from the Monday after the prosecutors claimed she was biased against them.

Lead prosecutor Assistant District Attorney William McCauley claimed Superior Court Judge E. Susan Garsh made erroneous rulings  and disrespected him in a 2010 murder trial, according to Fox Sports. He said she should remove herself from this case as a result.

Garsh, however, refused to do so.

"Considerations other than the law have not and will not color any of my rulings," she said from the bench.

District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter announced he would not appeal the ruling and was confident that Garsh would be fair when Hernandez's case goes in front of a jury sometime next year.

Hernandez, 23, was charged with a first-degree murder charge in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player who was dating Hernandez's future sister-in-law.

Hernandez is accused of driving to a secluded field in North Attleboro, Mass., in June and shooting Lloyd five times. His alleged motive was that he saw Lloyd talking to people he had a problem with outside a Boston nightclub a few days prior.

Since Hernandez's arrest, five others have been charged for additional crimes in the case: Shayanna Jenkins, Hernandez's fiancée, faces perjury charges after she allegedly destroyed evidence prosecutors could use against him; Ernest Wallace Jr., 41, and Carlos Ortiz, 27, were indicted as accessories after the fact for going with Hernandez to pick up Lloyd; and his cousin, Tanya Singleton, was charged with contempt of court and conspiracy to commit accessory after the fact.

A fifth man, Alexander Bradley, was arrested and ordered to testify before a grand jury investigating a 2012 double murder in south Boston, which prosecutors are probing for a possible link to Hernandez.
