HOUSTON The case against a Galveston judge accused of abusing his power is getting more bizarre.

Judge Chris Dupuy is facing eight charges related to his actions on the bench, but on Friday we learned about more drama in his personal life.

Dupuy s former fiancee took the stand to testify against him, then pleaded the fifth saying she was afraid for her daughter s safety.

Before Friday she reportedly told investigators that Dupuy was planning to have his ex-wife killed and had even bought a gun with a silencer.

The judge is fighting his ex-wife for custody of their children. Dupuy smiled and laughed during Friday s court hearing.

He called all of this a personal attack.
