MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two University of Wisconsin-Madison police officers are traveling to Boston to join thousands of others Wednesday in honoring the MIT officer who was killed in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings.
UW-Madison Police Department spokesman Marc Lovicott says Detective Peter Grimyser (GRIM'-eyes-er) and Officer Juan Avila are leaving Monday at noon. They will drive 18 hours to the Boston area to attend the memorial service for 26-year-old Officer Sean Collier.
Officials have said Collier was shot Thursday night on the MIT campus in Cambridge by the Boston Marathon bombers.
A spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office in Massachusetts says 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) is expected to face charges in his death.
