CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice is set to appoint a law firm investigator to fill a vacancy in the House of Delegates.

The governor's office says in a news release that Justice will appoint Chuck Little of Davisville to the 9th District seat, which serves Wirt and Wood counties. The statement says Little will be sworn in before the special session resumes Monday.

Little will replace Republican Ray Hollen, who resigned earlier this month to take a job for the U.S. Defense Department.

Little is an investigator with a Charleston law firm. He previously served as an investigator for a U.S. House committee. He also spent 23 years as a special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury and 15 years with the West Virginia State Police.
