On Monday Judge Tilman Self ruled Bibb County Prosecutors can handle the felony burglary case against 25 year old Stephen McDaniel.
McDaniel's attorney, Floyd Buford, argued his client's two month internship for the Bibb DA's office caused a conflict of interest in the case. Buford also said if the DA's office stayed on the case his client's rights would be violated.
Judge Self found no evidence of any personal conflict or any reason to believe McDaniel would have an unfair trial.
McDaniel remains a person of interest in the murder of his neighbor, 27 year old Lauren Giddings.
