OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The names of two people have been forwarded to the governor for his consideration in filling an open judgeship in eastern Nebraska’s 5th Judicial District.

A judicial nominating commission selected Rachel Daugherty, of Grand Island, and Jason Mielak, of Columbus, for interviews and a decision by Gov. Dave Heineman.

The district court opening was created by the retirement of Judge Michael Owens, who was appointed to the post in 1996.

The 5th District covers Boone, Butler, Colfax, Hamilton, Merrick, Nance, Platte, Polk, Saunders, Seward and York counties.
