MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Second Judicial Circuit Judge Mark A. Karl is stepping down after serving for more than two decades.

Chief Judge David A. Hummel sent a letter Wednesday to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin notifying the governor that Karl will retire on March 31. Tomblin will appoint a replacement to serve the remainder of Karl’s term, which ends Dec. 31, 2016.

The Second Judicial Circuit includes Marshall, Wetzel and Tyler counties.

Karl tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register (https://bit.ly/17YRY35) that he had considered retiring for about two years. His decision was solidified by a recent vacation to Florida with his wife.
