— Warren County commissioners hired a new county manager Wednesday to replace the current one, who is on suspension.

Loria Williams is accused of using inmate labor on private property.

Citizens signed a petition in support of Williams, hoping to keep her on the job, but the commissioners hired Robert Smith as her interim replacement.

Smith will be paid $5,000 a month. Williams is still being paid her full salary.
