INDIANAPOLIS — Several hundred police officers from around the state and nation have filed past the casket of a slain Indianapolis police officer as part of a day of funeral services Thursday, Sept. 26.

Ralph Tobias says he traveled to Indianapolis from Officer Rod Bradway’s northern Indiana hometown of Nappanee with a busload of other residents to pay their respects. Tobias says Bradway died as a hero when he was shot after kicking in an apartment door in response to screams from a woman held at gunpoint by an ex-boyfriend.

A police honor guard saluted Bradway’s widow and teenage son and daughter as they were escorted into the Bankers Life Fieldhouse before Thursday’s funeral. The service will be followed by a 20-mile procession through much of the city to Crown Hill Cemetery.

The Utah doctor convicted of killing his wife was sentenced to one to 15 years in prison in a separate sexual abuse case. He is facing up to life in prison at a sentencing hearing scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18, 2014. MacNeill was found guilty of giving his wife Michelle drugs prescribed after cosmetic surgery and leaving her to drown in the bathtub of their home in 2007 so he could begin a new life with his mistress. The long-awaiting sentencing comes after a Provo judge denied a request for a new trial.  (AP Photo/The Deseret News, Scott G Winterton, Pool, File)
