MEXICO, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri State Highway Patrol says funeral services will be held later this week for a trooper killed in a crash in northeast Missouri.

The patrol says 25-year-old James M. Bava died in the single-vehicle crash Friday after Bava observed a motorcyclist commit a traffic violation in Audrain County.

Colonel J. Bret Johnson said in a release Monday that visitation for Bava will take place from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday at Baue Funeral Home in St. Charles. The funeral service will be at 9:30 a.m. Friday at The Dardenne Presbyterian Church in Dardenne Prairie.

Gov. Jay Nixon said earlier that flags statewide will fly at half-staff on the day of Bava’s funeral. Flags already are being lowered at patrol facilities.
