NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A Philadelphia area district attorney has fired a detective who allegedly filed baseless charges against a contractor, ruining his business.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1mirewt ) reports that the Montgomery County district attorney fired detective Mary Anders this week. The move came as prosecutors reached a $1.6 million settlement with Walter Logan, a Radnor Township man who authorities now say was falsely charged with stealing from a Jenkintown church.

Logan says the theft charges all but destroyed reputation of his business. Logan’s attorney says Anders never even interviewed him, instead building the case using information provided by the church.

A message left at a number listed for Mary Anders was not immediately returned.
