JACKSON — Donna M. Barnes of Tupelo was named Monday by Gov. Haley Barbour to fill a vacancy on the Mississippi Court of Appeals.

Barnes, 43, replaces Appeals Judge Roger H. McMillin Jr., who retired April 30.

“Donna is a woman of integrity and high moral character who has a great legal mind,” Barbour said in making the appointment. “I know that she will be an asset to Mississippi’s judicial system.”

McMillin was one of the original members of the Appeals Court. He was first elected to the court in November 1994 from the First Congressional District. The district encompasses parts of 23 counties from the Tennessee border to Choctaw County.
