MANNSVILLE, Okla. -- The Mannsville Town Council met Monday for the first time since its treasurer was charged with embezzling more than $4,000 of state money.

Behind closed doors, they discussed whether or not to terminate, suspend, promote, demote, or increase the salary of treasurer Shonda Barnes and Fire Chief Derek Gray.

Their decision was to take no action against the two municipal employees.

Both Barnes and Gray were highlighted in the state audit that was released in September. Barnes was charged with embezzlement last week.

"She is innocent until proven guilty, but that's just my opinion," Gray said.
