PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - The body of former South Dakota Gov. Walter Dale Miller will lie in state in the Rotunda of the Capitol building in Pierre on Monday morning.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard says public viewing will be allowed from 7-11 a.m. Central time on Monday, with a memorial ceremony to begin at 1 p.m.

Miller died Monday night at age 89. Arrangements are pending for his funeral in Rapid City.

Miller stepped in as the state’s leader in 1993 after a plane crash killed his predecessor, Gov. George Mickelson. Miller served as the state’s 29th governor through 1995.
