A former federal prosecutor has been appointed as Kanawha County's prosecutor.
The Kanawha County Commission named Chuck Miller to the position today.

Miller will serve the remaining two years of former prosecutor Mark Plants' term. Plants was removed from office by a three-judge panel earlier this month.
Miller had been serving as temporary prosecutor.
He previously served as the U.S. attorney for West Virginia's southern district from 2005 to 2009. He became an assistant U.S. attorney after current U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin was hired.
Miller left the federal office in 2011 and joined the Kanawha County prosecutor's office as an assistant prosecutor.
