Interim St. Tammany coroner named


COVINGTON, La. - The St. Tammany Parish Council appointed an interim coroner Thursday.

Dr. Pramod Menon will serve in the position until a permanent replacement is elected in April.

Menon replaces Dr. Peter Galvan, who resigned last month after pleading guilty to federal charges of misusing public money.

Menon is a partner at Cardiovascular Associates in Covington and is part of the Louisiana Heart Hospital Physician Group in Lacombe. He is also vice-chief of staff at Lakeview Regional Medical Center near Mandeville. 

The Council set Menon's salary as interim coroner at $72,000 per year. The Council did not release the vote count.
