The Marion County Public Defender Agency's governing board plans to choose on Wednesday the person it wants to be the county's next chief public defender.

A public meeting is scheduled for 11:45 a.m. in Room 260 of the City-County Building at 200 E. Washington St. The nine-person board plans to conduct final interviews with Indianapolis defense attorneys Robert J. Hill Jr. and Eric K. Koselke, who are vying to succeed David E. Cook who's leaving the agency for private practice.

In late February, the board interviewed 10 initial applicants and trimmed the list to three: Hill, Koselke, and attorney Mark E. Kamish who practices at Baldwin Adams Knierim & Kamish in Franklin. But Kamish withdrew his name.

Following the interviews, the board will send a recommendation for consideration by the City-County Council, which has final confirmation power. That may not happen until mid-April, and the board expects to discuss its plan Wednesday for a possible interim director until the confirmation process is complete.
