PHOTOS: Funeral for officers Joering, Morelli in Westerville


WESTERVILLE (WCMH/AP) –Police officers and sheriff’s deputies from around the nation crowded into an Ohio church for the funeral of two slain police officers.

So many showed up for Friday’s funeral in the Columbus suburb of Westerville that many watched the service on television in a gymnasium next to the church.

Officers Eric Joering and Anthony Morelli were shot last Saturday after entering a townhome while responding to a 911 hang-up call.

Hundreds of police officers from around Ohio and cities including Chicago, Denver and El Paso, Texas, looked on as pallbearers carried the coffins into the church Friday.
