Anne Arundel County police have fired two emergency operators who they say botched a 911 call about the carjacking that resulted in the death of a Glen Burnie pharmacist, police and union officials confirmed yesterday.

Officials from the union representing the operators said they will appeal the decision. Police commanders said the firings of the 911 call taker and dispatcher were in the best interest of public safety.

Yvette A. Beakes was assaulted Aug. 8. She was later found shot to death.
