TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has named two district court judges to fill vacancies, including one caused by the appointment of a judge to the Kansas Court of Appeals.

Brownback, a Republican, named Linda Gilmore of Liberal to replace Judge Kim Schroeder in the 26th District in southwest Kansas. Schroeder was appointed earlier to the Court of Appeals. The 26th District covers Grant, Haskell, Morton, Seward, Stanton and Stevens counties.

The governor also appointed Aaron Roberts of Kansas City, Kan., to fill an opening in the 29th District, which covers Wyandotte County. Roberts fills an opening left by the retirement of Judge Ernest Johnson.

Both district court positions are in districts that elect their judges, meaning the appointees will face election in 2014 if they choose to keep their positions.
