MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The new chief deputy in the Alabama attorney general’s office has handled death penalty litigation for the state for decades.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall announced Clay Crenshaw’s appointment Tuesday.

Marshall said Crenshaw has a wealth of legal experience defending the state in complex litigation.

Crenshaw has worked in the attorney general’s office for nearly 30 years. He most recently served as chief of the appeals division that oversees Alabama’s death penalty cases and criminal appeals. He previously served as division chief for capital litigation.

Crenshaw is a graduate of the University of Alabama School of Law and Auburn University Montgomery.

He replaces Alice Martin, who was chief deputy for former Attorney General Luther Strange. Martin is rejoining the Alabama Department of Examiners of Public Accounts.
