TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - The funeral for a former Washington state lawmaker who was fatally shot in Alaska earlier this month will be held Saturday in Tacoma.

The News Tribune reports (https://is.gd/Zkaj9J ) the funeral for Brian Sullivan will be held at 11 a.m. at Bellarmine Preparatory School.

Sullivan served two terms in the Washington Legislature and was working as an assistant district attorney in Barrow, Alaska, at the time of his death.

He was shot and killed Dec. 8 in Barrow.

A man accused of shooting Sullivan in a jealous rage over a woman has been indicted on murder charges by a grand jury. Forty-seven-year-old Ronald Fischer was charged last week with first- and second-degree murder.
