Sanford police chief steps down

Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee steps down temporarily, less than a day after city commissioners gave him a “no confidence” vote. Hours later, local state attorney Norman Wolfinger recuses himself from the case. Florida Gov. Rick Scott appoints Angela Corey, the state attorney for the Jacksonville area, to take over the case.
