JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Governor Phil Bryant is appointing Tupelo attorney Terrill “T.K.” Moffett as a chancery judge in an eight-county northeast Mississippi district.

Named Friday, Moffett replaces Chancellor Talmadge Littlejohn, who died in October. Because more than half of Littlejohn’s term remained at his death, a special election to fill the seat will be held in November.

Moffett is a West Point graduate and military veteran who retired from the Mississippi National Guard as a major general. He has practiced law since 1979 and served as Tupelo city prosecutor for 10 years.

The 1st Chancery District covers Alcorn, Itawamba, Lee, Monroe, Pontotoc, Prentiss, Tishomingo and Union counties.

Earlier this year, Bryant appointed Moffett to the Veterans Home Purchase Board, which approves home loans for military veterans.
