The attorneys for Andrew Brown Jr.’s family are asking Elizabeth City District Attorney Andrew Womble to recuse himself from the investigation into Brown’s police killing.
In a letter sent to District Attorney Womble’s office, civil rights attorneys Ben Crump, Bakari Sellers, and Harry Daniels ask Womble to remove himself from the investigation due to his ties to the Elizabeth City Sheriff’s Office.
“Womble’s involvement would be a miscarriage of justice for Andrew Brown Jr., his family, and the people of Elizabeth City,” said Attorney Bakari Sellers.
