Chief tax deputy named interim Mingo Co. sheriff

WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (AP) - Mingo County chief tax deputy Pam Dixon will serve as the county's interim sheriff.

Media outlets report that the County Commission named Dixon as interim sheriff on Wednesday.

She replaces Rosie Crum, who resigned last month.

Crum was appointed as interim sheriff days after her husband, Sheriff Eugene Crum, was fatally shot on April 3 while eating lunch in his car in downtown Williamson.

Interviews are being conducted to choose a permanent sheriff.
