Mayor Wants Prosecutor Removed From Case

Charleston Mayor Danny Jones wants Kanawha County Prosecutor Mark Plants removed from a case. WSAZ TV reports Mayor Jones said at a meeting last night before the city council meeting, that Plants doesn't like Lt. Steve Cooper, and should remove himself from the murder-for-hire case involving him. Darrell Carter was arrested last week and charged with ordering a hit on Cooper. Plants issued a statement saying it's an attempt by Danny Jones to play politics and his office is committed to seeking justice.
