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.
