The commission selected Jonathan Jewell and Teresa McCune as the "best-qualified persons."

Jewell works with the Public Defender Corporation and McCune serves as the chief public defender for the 30th judicial circuit.

The commission also recommended Deloris Nibert for a judicial vacancy in the Putnam County family court.
