NORFOLK, Va. — Acting Police Chief Sharon Chamberlin broke her silence Tuesday on the flow of information surrounding the death of a police recruit, saying she and another senior officer told former Chief Bruce P. Marquis about blows to the recruit's head.

Marquis, forced to retire effective last week, has said Chamberlin and his other top administrators did not adequately inform him about John Kohn being struck in the head.
