Funeral arrangements for two Westerville officers killed in the line of duty Saturday morning have been announced.

A public vistation for Officer Eric Joering and Officer Anthony Morelli will start 10 a.m. on Friday, at St. Paul Catholic Church, 313 North State Street, in Westerville.

Funeral services will begin at 12:30 p.m.

Officer Joering and Officer Morelli were killed Saturday morning after responding to a 911 hang up on Cross Wind Drive.

The suspect Quentin Smith - who was shot and wounded - was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated murder. The Westerville Police Chief later said it was a suspected domestic violence situation, and the officers were fired on as soon as they entered the residence.
