A deputy Nelson County Coroner resigned Tuesday who had been serving for more than a year in violation of the county’s ethics ordinance.
Nelson County Coroner Rayfield “Field” Houghlin asked his daughter, Rebecca, to resign, and she complied, following a complaint filed against him for nepotism with the Joint City-County Ethics Board.
In a statement to the Standard, Houghlin said his daughter was qualified, with a degree in mortuary science.
Rebecca was hired as a deputy coroner March 1, 2013. The position pays $300 a month.
