image003Mohave County will have a new medical examiner starting this summer. The Board of Supervisors voted Monday to award a contract to Dr. Archiaus Mosley.

Dr. Mosley will begin working as county coroner on July 1 under a two year contract totaling a little more than $1.2-million. Procurement Director Annie Newton-Fruhwirth said the county will save about $1,000 a month from what it pays current medical examiner Dr. Rexene Worrell.

About 30 qualified doctors were asked if they were interested in submitting a proposal to serve as Mohave County Medical Examiner. Dr. Mosley was the only one who did so.
