PUTNAM COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Delores Nibert lost to Rick Witt in the Republican primary for Putnam County Family Court Judge.
Back in December, Nibert became the interim judge after former Judge William Watkins was suspended until the end of his term in 2016.
Watkins was accused of delaying rulings, screaming during court hearings and failing to enter domestic violence orders.
Witt got 56% of the vote to Nibert 44%.
Witt will now go on to face David Hill in the general election in November.
