Madison officer who killed man back on duty


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison police officer who killed an unarmed biracial man has returned to duty.

Matt Kenny shot Tony Robinson in an apartment house in March. Kenny said Robinson started punching him after he entered the building to investigate sounds of a disturbance. Witnesses said Robinson, who was high on mushrooms, had assaulted two people moments before the encounter.

Prosecutors cleared Kenny of any criminal wrongdoing in May. An internal investigation that concluded in early June found he violated no police policies.

A police spokesman says Kenny, who had been on paid leave, has returned to work with the training and mounted patrol units. He says none of Kenny's duties involve patrols. He said Kenny's last leave day was June 10 but didn't know when Kenny returned to work.
