FORT MITCHELL, Ky. - The family of former Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Wil Schroder says he has died.
   
His cousin, Kenton County Judge-executive Steve Arlinghaus, told The Kentucky Enquirer that the 67-year-old passed away late Saturday night.
   
Schroder retired from the court in January after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.
   
Before being elected to an eight-year term on the Supreme Court in 2006, he served on the Court of Appeals for 15 years and as a trial judge on Kenton District Court for nearly eight years.
   
In May, Northern Kentucky Bar Association honored Schroder with its Legacy of Justice Award.
