Denver dispatcher fired after 911 caller is killed; officials say critical info not relayed

Police say a dispatcher has been fired after failing to relay key information to officers responding to a call from a woman who was killed 12 minutes into a 911 call.

Police say the dispatcher didn't tell officers that the woman's husband was getting a gun from a safe.

Public safety department spokeswoman Daelene Mix said Monday the dispatcher was fired Friday. The person was not identified.

Police have said Kristine Kirk pleaded in the April 14 call for authorities to hurry and send officers because her husband had asked her to get a gun and shoot him.

Kirk said Richard Kirk was hallucinating, after having marijuana-infused candy and possibly pain pills.

Forty-seven year-old Richard Kirk has been charged with first-degree murder. He has not yet entered a plea.
