Longtime prosecutor Brian Stover has been named 9th Judicial District Attorney, succeeding Andrea Reeb who is retiring in March.

Stover, 48, said he received a call from the governor's office on Friday, informing him of the appointment.

Stover, an Eastern New Mexico University graduate and Roswell native, has been assistant district attorney in Clovis-Portales since 2006.

He has been named New Mexico District Attorney's Association prosecutor of the year 13 times.

Reeb announced last year she plans to retire from the DA's position she's held for seven years. She plans to work as a contract prosecutor after March 1.
