PRINCETON, W.Va. (AP) - A new judge for West Virginia’s 9th Circuit will take the oath of office at the Mercer County Courthouse.

Mark Wills’ swearing-in ceremony is set for Wednesday afternoon in Princeton.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin appointed the private-practice attorney to serve the remainder of the term of Circuit Judge Omar Aboulhosn, who resigned to become a federal magistrate judge. Wills also was elected last month for a term that begins in January.

Wills has practiced law for 35 years. He also has served in the state Senate and House of Delegates.
