SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The City of Springfield is trying to recoup some of Kevin Burnham’s pension.

The Springfield retirement board is expected to address the city’s request for a hearing at Wednesday night’s board meeting.

Burnham never showed up to court on June 5, and was found dead inside his Wilbraham home.
