JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Supreme Court has chosen Justice Craig Stowers to be the next chief justice.

The announcement was made Wednesday in a release from the court system.

Stowers will succeed Dana Fabe, whose latest term as chief justice ends June 30. Under the constitution, chief justices serve three-year terms and may serve more than one three-year term, though not consecutively.

Stowers, a former superior court judge, has served on Alaska’s highest court since December 2009.
