A Philadelphia homicide detective accused in a number of cover-ups, will be fired.

Ronald Dove has been suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss.

Published reports say the 16-year veteran failed to cooperate with an internal investigation into whether he mishandled three murders.

One allegedly involved his girlfriend, who was accused of stabbing a man to death.

Officials say Dove violated departmental policy and also lied during the course of his investigation.
