CULPEPER, Va. (AP) — The Culpeper police officer charged with killing an unarmed woman has been fired.

Daniel Harmon-Wright was indicted late last month on murder and gun charges. At the time he was suspended without pay. The Free Lance-Star reports that Harmon-Wright was fired from his job on Tuesday after the completion of an internal affairs investigation.

Police have said Harmon-Wright was responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle in a church parking lot when he fatally shot 54-year-old Patricia A. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is free on bond.

Harmon-Wright’s mother, Bethany Sullivan, was charged with three counts of forgery of public documents for attempting to purge her son’s negative records while she was an administrative secretary to the police chief.
