ATLANTA (AP) - The former district attorney running in the Democratic primary for attorney general called on his opponent to take down an attack ad that claims he made a series of mistakes in a high-profile case.

Ken Hodges said Thursday that state Rep. Rob Teilhet was exploiting the victims of the case and urged his rival to remove the ads from the airwaves.

The ad by Teilhet's campaign features Emily Walker. She criticizes Hodges for failing to secure a grand jury indictment against the deputy who shot and killed her unarmed son Kenneth.

Teilhet's campaign said the Walker case is an important part of Hodges' record.
