CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Fired state schools superintendent Jorea Marple has received her first retirement benefits from the state.

The Charleston Daily Mail (http://bit.ly/VsffgJ) reported Marple and her husband, former state attorney general Darrell McGraw, applied for benefits for their years of public service. McGraw, a Democrat, lost in the November election.

Marple and McGraw together will receive more than $180,000 a year in pensions. The newspaper obtained the figures from the Consolidated Public Retirement Board through a Freedom of Information Act request.

Board Executive Director Jeff Fleck says Marple started receiving $8,921 a month in January from the Teachers Retirement Fund. McGraw will receive $6,227 a month from the Public Employees Retirement System.

Marple's attorneys told the state Board of Education in late December that she plans to sue over her firing.
