SYRACUSE, N.Y.- Federal authorities have fired and demoted U.S. probation officers in the monitoring of a man charged with raping a 10-year-old girl and killing her mother during a carjacking at a New York mall.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports the changes made at the federal probation office in Syracuse were detailed in a letter Monday from U.S. courts administrators to U.S. Dan Maffei.
The probation officers came under fire in March after authorities said David Renz quickly removed and reassembled an electronic bracelet so monitors didn't immediately realize he'd taken it off. Authorities say Renz then strangled and stabbed a woman in her car and raped the woman's daughter during an attack outside Syracuse.
Renz has pleaded not guilty.
He had been required to wear the monitor because of an earlier child pornography arrest.
