CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The suspended Chief of the Monarch Fire Protection District is facing new charges less than one year after he was initially arrested.

Wayne Marsonette is facing several new charges including forgery and felony tampering with an airplane. In total, nine new felony counts have been brought against him.

Marsonette was originally facing allegations in connection with two jobs he had before becoming chief when he piloted aircraft for two private companies.

The new allegations against him say he used the companies’ aircraft to give flying lessons but pocketed the money himself instead of reimbursing the companies.

Charging documents also say he used company credit cards for personal expenses and personal travel.

Marsonette is currently out on bond. His attorney told News 4 Marsonette will be pleading not guilty to all charges, and denies any wrongdoing.
