HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez has appointed a new district attorney for three southeast New Mexico counties.

The Hobbs News-Sun reports (https://goo.gl/0R5vAu) reports that the Republican governor last week tapped 5th Judicial Chief Deputy District Dianna Luce to replace retiring District Attorney Janetta Hicks.

Luce will work out of Lea County and would oversee Chaves, Eddy and Lea counties.

The 50-year-old Luce served as a Lea County magistrate judge from 2004 to 2008, and has served as the chief deputy district attorney for the Fifth Judicial District since 2009.

Last month, Hicks announced she was leaving office two years into her second four-year term for personal and financial reasons.
