CHARLESTON, W.Va. — State senators Tuesday received copies of draft rules for sitting as a Court of Impeachment for the trials of three West Virginia Supreme Court justices, and are scheduled to convene Monday at the Capitol to approve the 10-page document.

“I wish we hadn’t gotten to this point, but we are where we are, and we’re going to do it as fairly as we can,” Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R- Jackson, said Tuesday of the pending impeachment trials.
