MADISON, Wis. - 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 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 is expected to face charges in his death.
