Police chemist accused of shoddy work fired


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ An embattled police chemist under investigation for performing shoddy work and giving false or misleading testimony in some criminal cases was fired Tuesday.

Joyce Gilchrist was dismissed from her job by Chief of Police M.T. Berry, who said the decision to terminate her was based on the recommendations on an administrative panel who heard testimony about Gilchrist's alleged misconduct over 14 days in August and September.

A statement from Berry's office said reasons for firing Gilchrist ``include laboratory mismanagement, criticism from court challenges and flawed casework analysis.'' Berry said her termination was effective Tuesday.
