MARIETTA, Okla. -- Suspended Marietta Police Chief William Baker will continue to be on paid leave until the end of this month. City officials said they need more time to fully complete their investigation.

Officials suspended Baker last month because of allegations that he may have violated police and city codes.

City attorney Richard Cochran and Marietta mayor Scott Birdsall completed a two-week investigation into the allegations.

After speaking with Mayor Birdsall, he said the decision to extend baker’s suspension happened during a closed door city council meeting Tuesday night when those findings were presented to the city council.

Baker has been with the police department since 2003. He’s been chief for more than a year.
