Funeral set for second Mississippi officer shot to death
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Funeral arrangements have been set for the second of two Mississippi officers killed in a traffic stop.
A funeral home in McComb says 25-year-old Officer Liquori Tate will be buried Friday after a funeral in Hattiesburg.
Officer Benjamin Deen will be buried Thursday in Sumrall after a funeral in Hattiesburg.
Authorities say that Deen, a former Hattiesburg "Officer of the Year," and Tate died after being shot Saturday by Marvin Banks, who has been charged with two counts of capital murder. Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict says Deen was shot in the head and Tate was shot in the back.
Banks was denied bond Monday by a judge. His brother, girlfriend and a friend face lesser charges.
More than 1,000 attended a Monday memorial in Hattiesburg for the officers.
