Burial planned in Ohio for soldier found murdered in Colorado Springs hotel room

CINCINNATI - Funeral services with military honors are planned in Cincinnati for a 28-year-old Army corporal killed in Colorado.

Authorities say Kimberly Walker was found dead Sunday in a Colorado Springs motel room. Her soldier boyfriend, Montrell Lamar Anderson Mayo, was jailed in Greenville, N.C., on a Colorado murder warrant.

Services are tentatively set for Feb. 26, but could be rescheduled pending other arrangements.

Director J.C. Battle of J.C. Battle & Sons funeral home says members of the petroleum supply specialist's platoon are expected to attend. He says the funeral home takes special steps to honor veterans, and will present Walker's family with a keepsake tapestry. The Army says she joined in 2004 and was stationed at Fort Riley, Kan.

No other information was released immediately, pending a meeting planned later with her family.
