Trial boards delayed for firefighters in Mills death

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Trial boards for two firefighters in the investigation into the death of a man outside a D.C. fire station have been delayed.

The attorney representing firefighters David Dennis and Garret Murphy in trial boards related to the death of Medric 'Cecil' Mills requested and received a continuance.

The trial boards for Dennis and Murphy were scheduled to begin on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively. The new dates for the trial boards have not been determined.

Dennis and Murphy were among the firefighters on duty at a Rhode Island Avenue station on January 25 when Cecil Mills collapsed from a heart attack.

Their supervisor Lt. Kellene Davis was found guilty of six neglect of duty charges including failure to command, assist, and giving a false statement. The 30-year-veteran is basically walking scott-free because she filed for and received retirement with benefits.
