Miami, FL (AP) - Florida Gov. Rick Scott and thousands of law
enforcement officers are expected at a funeral service for two
fallen Miami-Dade County police officers.
A motorcade of police officers from almost every city in Florida
will make its way from Vista Memorial Gardens to the
AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami, beginning at 9 a.m.
Monday. The service is planned for 11 a.m.
The officers -- 41-year-old Roger Castillo and 44-year-old
Amanda Haworth -- were killed Thursday while serving a warrant to a
suspected killer, 22-year-old Johnny Simms.
Simms was killed by another officer.
Haworth, a single mother, leaves behind a 13-year-old son.
Castillo, whose wife is also a Miami-Dade police officer, is
survived by three sons, ages 9 to 15.
