Lowe likely to prosecute Morales brothers

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA- It appears the outgoing Franklin County prosecutor may stay on after he leaves office in January.

Steve Lowe is currently the lead counsel in three murder cases, including those of Jose Garcia Morales and his brother.

In court Tuesday, Lowe says he and the county have tentatively agreed on financial compensation if he stays on as a special prosecutor after Shawn Sant takes over.

Sant is a public defender who represented Morales' brother Ramon Garcia Morales until he withdrew from the case after his election in November.
