WEST BEND, Wis. (AP) - Family and friends of Andrew Boldt will pay their respects to the 21-year-old West Bend native killed last week at Purdue University.

The Boldt family will receive visitors from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Saint Frances Cabrini Church in West Bend. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 7 p.m.

Those expected to attend include Mitch Daniels, Purdue’s president and a former Indiana governor.

The university also is providing charter bus service for students who want to come from Purdue to Wisconsin for the funeral.

Boldt was fatally shot and stabbed last week by another student. A not-guilty plea was entered on behalf of Cody Cousins, the 23-year-old charged in his death.

A scholarship fund is being set up in Boldt’s memory.
