A domestic assault case against the daughter of General Sessions Court judge candidate Gary Starnes is set to come before the current judge, David Norton, on Monday.
Judge Norton is expected to recuse himself in the case against 23-year-old Christina Kathleen Starnes Evans.
It is expected that an outside judge and outside prosecutor will be brought in to handle the case.
In the incident on Monday on Lakesite Drive, Charles Evans said he and his soon-to-be ex-wife had been arguing all day.
He said she threatened to mess up his truck and she proceeded to throw Coca-Cola on it and key the driver's side door.
He said when she attempted to leave, he took her car keys from her, then she began hitting him in the face.
Ms. Evans told an officer that Evans grabbed her by the head and wrist when he took the keys from her.
The officer said he did not see any physical injuries on her. He said Evans' whole face was red, but he also did not have any evidence of a physical assault.
Allison Gilbert, aunt of Evans, said she saw Ms. Evans striking him in the face numerous times.
The officer said he determined that Ms. Evans was "the predominant aggressor."
