Slain Officer To Be Added To Toledo Police Memorial

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The wife of a Toledo police detective who was shot and killed this week says she's grateful, because the community has been giving her "tremendous support."

At a news conference, Danielle Dressel said she's sad and devastated, but the honor and respect being shown toward her husband has been helpful.

Detective Keith Dressel was gunned down early Wednesday and became the first Toledo police officer killed in the line of duty since 1970. The funeral is scheduled for Monday, and plans are being made to add Dressel's name to Toledo's police memorial at a ceremony in May.

A 15-year-old boy has been charged with aggravated murder in the shooting. Prosecutors want Robert Jobe to stand trial as an adult.
