New magistrate appointed in Clay County

Governor Steve Beshear has appointed Harrison Pennington as the newest magistrate in Clay County.

Pennington replaces the late Jimmy "Jimbo" Lyttle, who died earlier this year.

Police say Lyttle stabbed his wife numerous times and then walked to a shed near his home and shot himself.

Friends and family told us at the time they were not sure what happened that April morning.
