PETERSBURG (AP) -- Virginia is paying its respects to a state trooper who was shot to death on Interstate 85 in Dinwiddie County.

Master Trooper Junius A. Walker's funeral will take place at 11:00 a.m. at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Petersburg. The service will be followed by a private burial.

A wake was held Monday night for the 63-year-old Walker.

Prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty for the man charged with killing Walker and shooting at another trooper. 28-year-old Russell E. Brown III of Chesterfield County is being held without bond at the Meherrin River Regional Jail in Alberta. He's charged with capital murder, two felony firearms counts and attempted capital murder.
