CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — A former judge in South Texas will return to the bench to replace a jurist who killed himself in his chambers at the Nueces County Courthouse.

Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday appointed David Stith as judge of the 319th Judicial District for a term to expire at the next general election.

Stith will replace Judge Tom Greenwall, whose body was discovered July 15 by a cleaning crew at a time when the courthouse was closed. Investigators say Greenwall shot himself.

Stith is a partner at Cassidy and Stith. He’s a former judge of Nueces County Court at Law 3.

Stith received a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas and a law degree from the Texas Tech University School of Law.
