MILFORD - A Milford police officer has reportedly been suspended for one day without pay for unknowingly deleting thousands of hours of dashboard video.

Published reports say the video was sought by the family of one of the two teens killed when a speeding Milford police cruiser slammed into their car.

Lt. Dan Bothwell reportedly accidentally deleted the video, but says that none of the dash-cam video from the case against the former officer involved in the crash was destroyed.
