Mingo County Commission to name new prosecutor and magistrate

WILLIAMSON, W.Va.. (WYMT)- The Mingo County commission is expected to name a new county prosecutor and magistrate on Wednesday.

Former prosecutor Michael Sparks and former commissioner David Baisden resigned in October after they were charged in separate cases stemming from a corruption probe.

Sparks is accused in a scheme to protect Sheriff Eugene Crum from revelations he'd bought drugs.
Crum died in April during an ambush style shooting. Baisden pleaded guilty in October to a federal extortion charge.
