WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s governor has directed that the state flag be lowered to half-staff on the Capitol building in Hartford in honor of Waterbury’s late acting deputy police chief, Christopher Corbett.

The flag is to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Tuesday.

The 40-year-old Corbett was found dead in his parents’ home in Waterbury last week and the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the death a suicide. Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday morning.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said Monday he joins police officers throughout the state in morning Corbett’s loss.

Corbett joined the department in 1997. He became a captain in 2010 and was named the acting deputy chief in 2013. He also served as commander of the department’s detective division and as the department’s spokesman to the media.
