Former KC cops appeal firings
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Two former Kansas City police officers are appealing their firings in a case involving a pregnant suspect who miscarried.
Melody Spencer and Kevin Schnell filed petitions in Jackson County Circuit Court on Friday. They say the Board of Police Commissioners "failed to establish that there was cause" for their firings.
They're asking the court to reverse the commissioners' May 23 decision and reinstate them with full back pay and benefits.
The firings stem from a February 2006 traffic stop. The officers did not get medical help for pregnant suspect Sofia Salva, although she repeatedly asked for it. They arrested her, and she miscarried the next morning.
