CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- According to a statement released from the city of Charleston, Mayor Danny Jones filed for a divorce Friday from his wife of nearly six years, Sara DeBarr Jones.
"The couple has two young sons and are committed to raising them together as a team," according to the statement. "For the sake of their children, they are requesting privacy in connection to this very personal matter."
Mayor Jones married Sara back in September 2005 during a private ceremony in Virginia. Back when the marriage was made public, many were surprised to learn about it because the couple kept it quiet until the ceremony was over.
