CHARLESTON, W.Va. — It’s been a long court battle for Wanda Carney and Betty Jarvis, even after the state Supreme Court overturned their convictions stemming from allegations that their investigation into a 2005 Mingo County murder case interfered with a police investigation.

They’ve been to the state Supreme Court twice, once where justices overturned their criminal convictions and the second time when justices dismissed their civil lawsuits claiming retaliatory prosecution. The case wound its way to the Court of Claims, which recently recommended the women receive a more than $100,000 award.
