LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Three southeast New Mexico counties will need a new district attorney at the end of this month after Janetta Hicks announced her intention to step down.

The Roswell Daily Record reports (https://bit.ly/1eaWcHC) the Fifth Judicial District Attorney says she is leaving office two years into her second four-year term for personal and financial reasons.

The fifth district attorney is paid $110,000 annually to oversee 67 employees and serve Chaves, Eddy and Lea counties.

Her last day is May 31. The governor is appointing a replacement until voters can decide who will take up the office in 2016.
