MORTON COUNTY, N.D. - The man accused of murdering four people in Mandan is demanding a change of judge.

Documents filed Wednesday show 45-year-old Chad Isaak is asking for Judge James Hill to be disqualified from his case.

Your News Leader spoke with his attorney, Robert Quick, to ask why but he didn’t want to comment.

Earlier this month, Isaak’s trial was moved from March to September 2020 because of the amount of discovery in the case. Court documents show there are more than 200 witnesses listed for the trial.

Isaak pleaded not guilty earlier this year to four counts of murder, burglary, concealment within a vehicle and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Isaak is being held at the Burleigh Morton Detention Center on a $1 million cash bond.
