— Four Halifax County jailers have resigned, officials said Thursday.

Chief jailer Melita Payton and jail supervisor Lee Cofield were among those who resigned on July 14. Mark Murphy and Randy West also resigned.

Sheriff Jeff Frazier told WRAL News that the resignations were forced, but had nothing to do with criminal activity.
