Virginia will pay respects to a state trooper shot to death on Interstate-85.

Master Trooper Junius A. Walker's funeral is set for Tuesday morning in Petersburg. The service will be followed by a private burial.

Meanwhile, prosecutors say they'll seek the death penalty for Russell Brown, III.

He's being held without bond.
