LEHI, Utah (AP) -- Two police officers who killed a woman after she shot another officer were cleared to return to work.

Lehi police say the officers had been on paid leave, which is standard when police are involved in a shooting. Investigators determined that the two officers were right to fire on 34-year-old Kelly Wark on June 23.

The officers' names were not released. They were backing up Capt. Harold Terry, who pulled over Wark on June 23 and was shot twice in the head. Terry's condition was upgraded from serious to fair last week. He is out of intensive care and has started physical therapy.

Wark's family says she had been suffering from mental illness.
