A Massachusetts State Police photographer who released stark photos to a local magazine of the capture of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev faces a hearing to determine if he will be suspended until an internal investigation is complete.

Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio says the agency didn’t authorize Sgt. Sean Murphy to release photos of Tsarnaev to Boston Magazine. He says Murphy has been relieved of duty for one day after he released the photos in response to a controversial image on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

Procopio did not say when the hearing will be.
