KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A person familiar with the arrangements says a memorial service for Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher is planned for Wednesday afternoon.

The team moved up its practice schedule Wednesday so players could attend a 2 p.m. memorial service for Belcher at the Landmark International Deliverance and Worship Center in Kansas City. The source who spoke to The Associated Press requested anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to discuss the event.

The source said the memorial service is not open to the public. Other details of the service aren't known.

Belcher shot Perkins at their home Saturday morning before driving to Arrowhead Stadium, where he committed suicide in the practice facility's parking lot.
