SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Virginia police officer who was shot and killed her first day on the job is being laid to rest next to her father in a Massachusetts cemetery.

A funeral Mass for Ashley Guindon is scheduled for Monday at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Springfield, followed by burial at St. Thomas the Apostle cemetery, in West Springfield. Her father, David, died in 2004.

The 28-year-old Guindon was a former Marine Corps reservist. She lived in western Massachusetts before her family moved to New Hampshire.

She was killed Feb. 27 while responding to a domestic dispute at a home in Woodbridge, Virginia, the day after she was sworn in as a Prince William County officer.

Thousands of officers from across the country are expected to participate in the funeral procession.
