Multiple sources tell News 9 that Bethany police detective Austin Warfield has been reinstated with the Bethany Police Department.

In January, Warfield was let go following an internal investigation. The detective was dismissed four months after the firing of Capt. Jack Jencks. Both detectives were assigned to the unsolved murder of Carina Saunders, 19.

News 9 reached out to Bethany Police Chief Phil Cole, but he declined to comment on the officers' status.
