Judge Denies Carter's Motion to Recuse, Reverse Wrongful Death Verdict

KNOXville, Iowa - A Marion County judge Monday denied Jason Carter’s motion for the judge to recuse herself.

She also dismissed Carter's request to throw out the wrongful death judgement against him

He was found liable in a lawsuit for his mother's death after a jury acquitted him of first-degree murder.

Jason’s siblings and father Bill filed the lawsuit in 2016 after no criminal charges were filed in the death of Shirley Carter.

She was found shot to death insider her Lacona home back in 2015.

A jury found Jason civilly liable for Shirley’s death and awarded his father Bill Carter $10 million in damages.

Jason was then charged with first degree murder in his mother’s death because of new evidence in the civil case.

Jason Carter was found not guilty in the criminal trial last March, and has since filed his own lawsuit.

He was seeking for the judge to recuse herself, claiming an attorney heard the judge say Jason is “guilty as sin” for Shirley’s death.
