Gov. Mitch Daniels has appointed new judges in two central Indiana counties.
The governor's office says Daniels appointed J. Jeffrey Edens as judge of the Boone Circuit Court. Edens succeeds Justice Steven David, who was appointed to the Indiana Supreme Court in September. Edens has been serving as judge pro tempore since David's appointment.
Edens is a former Boone County chief deputy prosecutor and past president of the Boone County Chamber of Commerce.
Daniels also appointed David Riggins as a Shelby County Superior Court judge. Riggins succeeds Judge Russell Sanders, who announced his retirement in August.
