The McIntosh County commissioners interviewed six candidates for the sheriff's job on Tuesday, after getting 13 applicants for the job.

The commissioners have scheduled a special meeting for Wednesday morning to vote on Jones' replacement.

That person will serve until a special election in July 2010. The winner of the special election will serve out Jones' term through 2012.
