State's Attorney reviews former Tea police chief's criminal cases

Posted: Updated:

Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman said he plans to review criminal cases in Tea due to the allegations the former police chief faces in Wyoming.

Former Chief Brian Ketterhagen and former officer James Klimple resigned last week. The state attorney general's office said there is an ongoing investigation involving the resignations.

Ketterhagen is being sued by a Wyoming man wrongfully convicted of murder. Troy Willoughby claims Ketterhagen withheld evidence of an alibi. Willoughby was found guilty and served three years in prison, until he was found not guilty in a second trial.

Willoughby's civil case against Ketterhagen has prompt Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman to investigate criminal cases in Tea, SD.

"The allegations in the civil complaint in Wyoming are serious enough that a review of the cases he was involved with here is warranted and prudent," Wollman said in an email to KSFY News.

Wollman added because Ketterhagen was the chief the number of cases he worked on is limited.
