Deputy to be Burns chief
Marion County deputy Joel Womochil began duties this week as part-time police chief at Burns.
The city hired Womochil last week to fill a vacancy left by the death of Stephen Evans, 44, El Dorado, who died in an October car crash north of El Dorado.
Womochil has been with the sheriff’s office since April 2020, graduated from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center in October 2020, and has been a part-time Peabody officer since March
