BOONVILLE, Indiana — A southwestern Indiana judge who will preside over the murder trial of a man accused in a killing at a power plant has told attorneys that he once represented the suspect in an unrelated case.

Warrick County Superior Court Judge Zach Winsett informed prosecutors and 33-year-old Mathew McCallister's attorneys Monday. He said that he represented McCallister when McCallister faced 2009 misdemeanor charges, including driving with a suspended license.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/20pDPoK ) Winsett said he didn't know any reason why he should be disqualified from the case, but was giving attorneys 30 days to file any written objections.

McCallister is charged in the February 2014 shooting death of Joseph Nelson of Martinsville, Indiana. Nelson's body was found at Alcoa Warrick Operations along the Ohio River just east of Evansville.
