The defense asked that the case go to anyone except Kinsella and the judge who presided over Marilyn Lemak's trial. She's serving a life sentence for killing her three children in Naperville in 1999.

Mara also asked for a Polish interpreter for her Nov. 21 arraignment, saying she speaks English but is more comfortable in her native language.
