RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Staunton woman is the Virginia Lottery's latest $1 million prize winner.

Lottery officials say Sara Kesterson bought the winning ticket for the Casino Royale Scratcher game at a Kangaroo Express in Staunton.

The Lottery gave the store a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
