PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Aliquppa's suspended police chief hasn't commented about a move to place him on paid administrative leave.

Chief Donald Couch is the target of an accusation according to Aliquippa's solicitor. Myron Sainovich tells the Post-Gazette the unanimous council vote Wednesday night came as a surprise to Chief Couch.

Sainovich also says the move is not directly related to the investigation into the murder of 33 year old teacher Rachel DelTondo.

Aliquippa police Sgt. Kenneth Watkins has been placed on leave because his family was close to DelTondo.
