A Broward judge is under fire after she repeatedly snapped at a frail inmate who later died at her Lauderhill home.

The inmate’s family accused Circuit Court Judge Merrilee Ehrlich of treating Sandra Twiggs, 59, “like an animal.”

Ehrlich, who was first elected in 2008 and will retire on June 30, presided over first appearance court last weekend, setting preliminary bail amounts for the most recently arrested inmates at the Broward jail.

Chief Judge Jack Tuter, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Saturday that Ehrlich filed her formal retirement paperwork two weeks ago, before this incident.
