CLARENDON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Two familiar names in Clarendon County are filing to run for coroner once again.

Lanette Samuels-Cooper defeated Bucky Mock in the most recent Democratic primary for the office. However, the results were thrown out after Samuels-Cooper was ruled ineligible for the position.

A judge ruled Samuels-Cooper lacked experience as a death investigator or medical examiner meeting statutory requirements. Since that ruling, Samuels-Cooper has filed an appeal.

Until a decision is made on that ruling, a new primary has been scheduled for Sept. 4.
