Names of suspended Mayfield police officers confirmed

We now know the names of the two Mayfield Police Officers who were suspended Monday morning without pay. Major Shannon Keller and Lieutenant Chris Watkins are accused of violating department rules and regulations.

Mayfield Mayor Teresa Rochetti-Cantrell would not originally release their names because of the Police Officer Bill of Rights, but when we asked her to confirm or deny if Keller and Watkins were suspended, she was able to confirm the information. However, she says she can’t tell us what happened, because the investigation is ongoing. Attorney Stacey Blankenship has spent the last two weeks looking into the situation.

The mayor says later next week, charges will be filed against Keller and Watkins. There’s no word yet on what those charges are.
