Two employees of the Cook County morgue were fired in connection with a review of possible misconduct at the morgue.

After being told he was being suspended and possibly dismissed, 58- year-old autopsy technician Joel Neason was charged with simple assault. Neason allegedly threatened to return to the morgue with a gun.

A source has confirmed to ABC7 that Neason was one of the two fired morgue employees.
