CHANDLER, JUSTICE, OBJECTING TO THE ORDER WITH SEPARATE WRITTEN STATEMENT:
¶ 1. I would not dismiss the Petition for Writ of Certiorari. I believe the law is clear that the trial judge must be present at all times during the trial that the jury is receiving evidence. Because that was not done in this case, I would reverse and remand for a new trial.
KITCHENS, J., JOINS THIS SEPARATE WRITTEN STATEMENT.
