OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Gov. Mary Fallin has appointed an assistant district attorney as the new district attorney for District 27 in northeastern Oklahoma.
Fallin said Wednesday that she's appointing Jack Thorp as prosecutor for Adair, Cherokee, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties.

Thorp replaces Brian Kuester, who resigned after being appointed U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.

Thorp has served as Kuester's top assistant and previously was an assistant district attorney in Tulsa County and was deputy prosecuting attorney in western Arkansas.

Thorp will serve the remainder of Kuester's term, which expires in January 2019.
