BROOKSVILLE, Fla. -- Within an hour of the chaotic 911 call from a sister reporting that one of her brothers had killed another brother and buried him in the family's yard, the dispatcher with the Hernando County Sheriff's Office was counseled on how she could have better handled the situation, officials said Wednesday.

Jessica Vore, a veteran dispatcher for the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, has received the lowest level of disciplinary action for her handling of the call that came in Monday, said Chief Bill Kicklighter, director of communications.
