DELAWARE, Ohio — A Delaware County deputy has been fired from her third law-enforcement job in five years.

Janine Senanayake had been in training or called off sick from her job as a road deputy nearly every day since April 9.

Senanayake was fired in a letter from acting Sheriff Scott Vance. She also was issued a one-day suspension yesterday for failing to show up at two hearings in Delaware Municipal Court in February. She had a pending administrative investigation against her from Feb. 27, apparently for missing court.
