FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) – St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley is asking Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster to remove St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch from the Michael Brown investigation.

“I think he should recuse himself,” Dooley says of McCulloch. “I think that Chris Koster ought to come on and assign a special prosecuter. I think Mr. McCulloch’s objectivity is in question. And if it’s in question, that should be enough to bring another special prosecutor to resolve this issue.”

McCulloch’s objectivity has come under question because his father – a police officer – was killed in a shooting, and because he opening criticized the decision by Gov. Jay Nixon to remove county police from the streets of Ferguson this week.
