Former Lubbock Deputy Medical Examiner fired for lying

EL PASO, TX (KCBD) - The former Deputy Medical Examiner of Lubbock County is out of a job. According to the NBC Affiliate in El Paso, Paul Shrode was fired Monday as El Paso County's Chief Medical Examiner.

Shrode was accused of lying on his resume in Lubbock, so he could get the El Paso job. More recently, his testimony is one reason the Ohio Parole Board says a man named Richard Nields should be taken off death row for a 1997 murder. The board says instead of giving the facts, Shrode made guesses during that testimony.
