A Summit County Sheriff's Deputy is on paid leave pending the results of an internal investigation into his conduct on the job.
Summit County Sheriff Drew Alexander confirms that deputy Dominic Martucci is the subject of an internal investigation.
Martucci is being investigated for possible violations of policies and procedures on the job at the Summit County Jail.
In 2006 Martucci and other deputies faced criminal charges in the death of inmate Mark McCullough. Charges against Martucci and three other deputies were dismissed after another deputy was acquitted on a charge of murder.
While declining further comment on the investigation Alexander tells AkronNewsNow the investigation could be wrapped up in the next week or two.
Dominic Martucci is the son of retired Akron Police detective Frank Martucci who ran unsuccessfully for Summit County Sheriff, losing to former deputy Steve Barry in the March Democratic Primary.
