DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Larry Eisenhauer, chief judge of the Iowa Court of Appeals, has announced his plans to retire.

The Des Moines Register reports that Eisenhauer will retire effective Sept. 30.

The 66-year-old Eisenhauer has spent 28 years as an Iowa judge and was named chief judge of the appeals court last year.

Eisenhauer, of Ankeny, was appointed to the Court of Appeals in 2001. The Kansas native served two years in the U.S. Army before graduating from Drake University Law School in 1974. He practiced law privately before serving as an associate juvenile judge between 1985 and 1993, when he was elected Polk County District Court judge.

The governor will appoint a replacement from a list of three candidates submitted by the State Judicial Nominating Commission.
