WELLSTON, MO (KTVI)-There is a new development in the case of the troubled former Wellston, MO mayor. Saturday night, Linda Whitfield apparently returned most of the missing paychecks she took from city hall Friday.
The former mayor was kicked out of office by the city council and a judge upheld the council's decision saying she had to go. But, without authority, she went to city hall last week and took 40 paychecks.
She returned some on Friday and, after pressure from police, gave back most of the remaining checks Saturday night.
So far, there's no word if Wellston plans to press charges.
