The state Senate has confirmed Circuit Judge Sabrina McKenna's appointment to a 10-year term on the Hawaii Supreme Court by a vote of 23-0.

McKenna, Gov. Neil Abercrombie's first judicial appointment, will take the seat on the five-member court left open when Mark Recktenwald became chief justice last year.

McKenna, 53, the senior judge of Oahu's Family Court at the Kapolei courthouse, was a state judge in circuit and district courts for 17 years.

The Senate Judiciary and Labor Committee unanimously approved the McKenna's nomination earlier this month.
