Elgin's fire and police commissioners voted Thursday to fire Officer Claudia Murphy after receiving a memo from the police chief wrought with incidents of misconduct - including the mistreatment of an Elgin couple in June.

The city's board of fire and police commissioners was not "fully apprised" of the employment background of Officer Claudia Murphy before she was hired last year, officials said Wednesday.
