The Abbeville City Council votes to bring back a familiar face to run its police department.   Marlos Walker will lead the department again following an 11-year absence.   Walker left Abbeville to become the chief for Ozark PD in 2015 and left that position in 2021.  While there a 20-year murder case was solved, and the suspect convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
