Two high-profile cases in West Virginia will be handled by prosecutors in different counties.
The case of Tennis Maynard, the man charged in the shooting death of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum will be handled by Kanawha County prosecutors, according to the Kanawha County Prosecutor's Office.
The deadly shooting happened in April 2012, while Crum was eating his lunch inside his truck outside of the Mingo County Courthouse. Since that time, numerous allegations of corruption within Mingo County have come to light.
Meanwhile, the case for Charleston attorney Mark Bramble will be handled by the Boone County prosecutor, Phil Morrison, executive director of the West Virginia Prosecuting Attorneys Association, said.
In August, Bramble was charged with wanton endangerment and attempted murder after police said he was involved in a standoff with officers at a South Hills home. Bramble shot himself in the head and underwent surgery at a Charleston hospital before his arrest.
