A longtime Waynesboro prosecutor died Wednesday morning. Chuck Ajemian, 71, spent the past 17 years as the city's commonwealth's attorney.
The Richmond native and University of Virginia School of Law graduate leaves behind a wife, five sons, and several grandchildren.
Attorney Thomas Weidner, who worked with Ajemian, says it's a sad day for the community.
"He was a quiet, dedicated leader who was selfless, and took the time to agonize over every problem a commonwealth's attorney has to make sure all the parties were represented in a fair way,” said Weidner.
Ajemian died at his home after several months of illness.
