MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Incoming Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has filled three more spots in his Cabinet.

Bentley on Thursday named Republican state Rep. Spencer Collier of Irvington to be the state's homeland security director.

Collier is a former Alabama state trooper and is director of economic and community development for the city of Bayou La Batre. He plans to resign his legislative seat.

Bentley also named a psychiatric health administrator at UAB, Zelia Baugh, to serve at commissioner of the Department of Mental Health. Baugh is the administrator of psychiatry at the UAB Center of Psychiatric Medicine.

The incoming governor also said Marquita Davis would continue to serve as the commissioner of the Department of Children's Affairs.

She has held that job since 2008 under Gov. Bob Riley.
