BENTON, Ky. (AP) - Marshall County had sworn in a new judge-executive.

She is Chyrill Miller, the widow of Marshall County’s late judge-executive, Mike Miller.

Gov. Steve Beshear on Friday appointed her to fill the vacancy left by her husband’s Dec. 15 death. She was sworn in Monday at the county courthouse by District Judge Jack Telle and Circuit Judge Dennis Foust.

Mike Miller, a Democrat, was 70 when he died after collapsing at work. He was judge-executive for 40 years and was re-elected to another term in November.

Chyrill Miller said in a statement she intends to carry on her husband’s legacy.

Beshear said in a statement that Miller will not run this fall when Marshall County voters elect a new judge-executive. The filing deadline to run for the office is Jan. 27.
