OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Gov. Frank Keating appointed a committee to conduct interviews and recommend two finalists to replace retiring Oklahoma County District Attorney Bob Macy.

Applications for the position will be accepted in the Governor's Office through the month of May and interviews will be conducted in early June, a news release from Keating's office said.

Macy's retirement is set for June 30.

The six committee members are:

_ Bob Ricks, commissioner of the Department of Public Safety and Cabinet Secretary of Safety and Security;

_ Tim Harris, Tulsa County District Attorney;

_ Rob Hudson, district attorney for Payne and Logan counties;

_ Andy Coats, dean of the University of Oklahoma Law School and former Oklahoma County DA

_ Kay Dudley, director of appointments, Office of the Governor;

_ Judy Terry, general counsel, Office of the Governor.

``I have complete faith and confidence in this group of outstanding professionals to conduct the interview process for this very important appointment,'' Keating said.

The governor hoped to have a new DA in place by the end of June, he said.
