Eastern Michigan University's Board of Regents plans to vote Wednesday on whether to appoint Susan Martin as the school's first female president in its 159-year history.

Martin would succeed John Fallon, who was fired in the wake of a cover-up of information about a student's December 2006 slaying.

Martin is provost and vice chancellor of academic affairs for the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and was one of four finalists.

Board Chairman Thomas Sidlik says in a statement Sunday that the decision was made to offer the job to Martin after discussions Saturday.

Last week, 21-year-old Orange Taylor III was sentenced to life in prison in the slaying of 22-year-old Laura Dickinson in her dorm room at the Ypsilanti school.
