HARLAN, Ky. (AP) — Longtime federal judge G. Wix Unthank has died in Harlan. He was 90.

The Harlan Daily Enterprise said Unthank died Tuesday.

Unthank was confirmed to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky at Pikeville in 1980 and the newspaper said he continued serving as a senior judge for the Eastern District in London, Ky., until about a year ago.

Chief Eastern District Judge Karen Caldwell said Unthank still wanted to serve and continued doing so into his late 80s.

Unthank's funeral was set for Thursday.
