Former Howard County Sheriff William "Bill" Jennings has died.
The 68-year-old died on Thursday in an Odessa hospital.
He'd been battling heart problems for the past several months.
Jennings was elected Sheriff in 1996, the final touch on his lifelong career in law enforcement.
Services for Jennings are Saturday morning at ten at the First United Methodist Church of Big Spring.
Visitation is on Friday evening from six to seven at the Nalley-Pickle and Welch Funeral Home.
