BENNETTSVILLE, S.C. — The handler of a Bennettsville Police Department K-9 officer that died of a heat stroke this week will not face criminal charges.

The officer, identified only as “Officer Miller” in a press release issued Thursday by Chief Larry McNeil, has been suspended for 60 days without pay. Upon his return, he will be on probation for 90 days. He is permanently restricted from being a K-9 handler in the future, McNeil said in the release.
