(FORT WAYNE) - The Allen County Sheriff's Merit Board fired a police officer Friday, agreeing he was not fit for the job.

The 4-1 vote came half a year after Sheriff Ken Fries filed a notice of termination against Christopher Ley, who had served on the department since Dec. 5, 2007. He had been suspended with pay since at least May.

The decision had been reached during a closed executive session late Thursday, after two days of testimony about Ley's failures as a police officer, specifically his inability to pass training that would qualify him to perform the duties of a patrol officer.
