BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — The executive director of historic home and museum Beauvoir in Biloxi has been fired.

WLOX-TV reported Friday that Stephen McKinney’s firing comes less than two months after he was hired to lead Beauvoir, a home of Confederate States of America President Jefferson Davis. McKinney was hired June 22.

The station says the board declined to comment on McKinney’s termination, saying it was a personnel matter. The termination was effective Friday. It’s unclear if the station reached out to McKinney for comment.
