El Paso County commissioners want Sheriff Terry Maketa to resign amid allegations of misconduct and sexual affairs with his subordinates.
A Colorado sheriff is rejecting calls for his resignation amid allegations that he had affairs with women who worked for him, was verbally abusive and mismanaged his budget, even as The Gazette on Wednesday reported fresh allegations from another subordinate.
Three department commanders in the El Paso County Sheriff's Office have filed a formal complaint against Sheriff Terry Maketa, accusing him of having affairs with subordinates, verbally abusing those who questioned the relationships and removing oversight of the department's $60 million budget.
The Black Forest Fire/Rescue Protection District has released a 2,000-page report that the board says fully exonerates the fire chief from allegations of unprofessional behavior or misconduct.
The fire department that first responded to a deadly wildfire in the Black Forest community says an outside investigation has cleared its chief of misconduct.
A Colorado sheriff said the two deaths reported in the Black Forest Fire that has raged in recent days are now being treated as homicides.
Remains of two people have been found in an area burned by a wildfire that has destroyed at least 360 houses northeast of Colorado Springs.
The number of houses destroyed by a wildfire near Colorado Springs could grow to around 100, and authorities fear it's possible that some people who stayed behind might have died.
Maketa, the face of calm during last year's Black Forest Fire, has denied the claims reported Friday by The Gazette (http://bit.ly/1m1IjJF ).
