Chief backs officers in Taser death

DELAND -- Two days after a Sanford man was repeatedly Tasered and died, the DeLand police chief said his officers did nothing wrong and should be allowed to return to work today.

Officers Austin Raimundo and Joel Hancock, who had been placed on paid administrative leave after Sunday's incident, are expected to return to their normal duties today, Overman said.
