Wednesday funeral planned for slain SC officer


AIKEN, S.C. (AP) — Funeral arrangements have been announced for a slain Aiken police officer.

The Shellhouse Funeral Home says services for Master Cpl. Sandra Rogers are scheduled for Wednesday at the University of South Carolina Aiken Convocation Center. Burial is taking place at Historic Bethany Cemetery in downtown Aiken.

Rogers died Saturday after responding to a report of suspicious activity. She had been with the Aiken Public Safety department for nearly 28 years.

The man accused of shooting Rogers is expected in court Monday. Officials say Joshua Tremaine Jones was arrested Saturday after police said he killed his girlfriend in Augusta, Ga., then fatally shot Rogers.

Police found the body of 21-year-old Cayce Vick in her apartment Saturday after she didn't show up for work. She had been shot in the head.
