HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania’s attorney general-elect, Josh Shapiro, says his top deputy will be a suburban Philadelphia prosecutor who helped win a criminal conviction against former Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

Shapiro said in a Thursday statement that he’s hiring Michelle Henry. She’s currently Bucks County’s first assistant district attorney.

The 48-year-old Henry is a 20-year veteran prosecutor who also served as Bucks County’s appointed district attorney for nearly two years.

The first deputy in the roughly 800-employee attorney general’s office oversees all legal, criminal and civil matters. Last year, Henry served as a special prosecutor in Montgomery County on the legal team that prosecuted Kane.

Shapiro says Henry also helped start a nonprofit agency that helps children who have been abused.
