DANVILLE, Ohio – Funeral services have been set for a police officer who authorities say was killed by a man who set out to find a cop and kill him.
Officer Thomas Cottrell's body was found late Sunday behind the village municipal building in Danville, about 60 miles northeast of Columbus.
Police say Herschel Jones III's girlfriend had called 911 to say he had weapons and was looking to kill an officer. Authorities say Jones is in custody and expected to be charged with murder.
