FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A former administrative law judge from Oldham County has been appointed to the Kentucky Court of Appeals.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office announced Monday that he appointed Allison Jones to fill the unexpired term of Justice Michelle M. Keller, who was appointed to the state Supreme Court in April.
