The saga of Sheriff Steve Kukowski’s tenure as Sheriff is drawing to a close. Ward County Commissioners voted to accept Mr. Kukowski’s resignation following a two-hour executive session on Tuesday. It all stems from the death of Dustin Irwin, an inmate at the Ward County Jail, who died in October of 2014 while in the care of the County. Mr. Kukowski will still face misdemeanor charges related to that event in July.
