The judge of the Trayvon Martin case quit after the attorney for George Zimmerman cited a conflict of interest relating to her husband.

Florida Circuit Judge Recksiedler stepped down because her husband works with attorney Mark NeJame who was originally asked to represent Zimmerman in the case,  reported the Associated Press.

Nejame referred the case to Mark O'Mara, who now represents Zimmerman.

The next judge in the circuit rotation, John D. Galluzzo, also cited a conflict of interest, according to AP. He said he has a personal and business relationship with O'Mara. 

Judge Kenneth M. Lester Jr. will preside over the bail hearing on Friday.
