Three D.C. Firefighters To Face Trial Boards For Cecil Mills’ Death
LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) — The three D.C. firefighters on duty the day Medric “Cecil” Mills died will be officially charged by the department next month, WNEW has learned.
Officials with Deputy Mayor for Public Safety Paul Quander’s office tell WNEW Senior Correspondent Mark Segraves that trial boards for the three men are scheduled to begin May 12.
Each firefighter will face an individual trial board. The first is scheduled for May 12, while the other two are scheduled for May 13 and May 15.
Fire Lt. Kellene Davis — who was in charge of the D.C. fire station when no one went to help Mills across the street — already faced the trial board and was charged with six counts of neglect of duty. She escaped any punishment by retiring.
Firefighter Garrett Murphy, also on duty that day, was the only other person placed on administrative leave along with Davis.
In addition to Davis and Murphy, the other firefighters assigned to Truck 15 the day Mills collapsed were George Martin, David Dennis and rookie Remy Jones.
