Monroeville police are investigating a threatening letter received by municipal manager Lynette McKinney on Thursday night at her home, an official said Friday morning.

Mayor Greg Erosenko said the letter threatens McKinney and her family in retaliation for recent disciplinary actions she has taken against former police chief Doug Cole, who she fired Wednesday.  Police were dusting the letter for fingerprints as of this morning, he said.
