Memorial for SW Wash. K-9 killed on duty



VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A public memorial service for a Clark County, Wash., sheriff’s office K-9 killed on duty has been scheduled Thursday at the county event center at the county fairgrounds in Ridgefield.

The 8-year-old Dutch shepherd named Kane was fatally stabbed April 2. He had served with the sheriff’s office for six years and worked with Deputy Rick Osborne.

A reception is planned after the 1 p.m. service.

The Columbian says 31-year-old H. Keegan Graves of La Center has pleaded not guilty to two counts of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon, and one charge each of harming a police dog, attempting to elude police and possessing a stolen vehicle. His trial is set for July 18.
