THERESA, N.Y. (AP) - Funeral arrangements are set for an upstate New York woman allegedly slain by her soldier husband, who’s also accused of fatally shooting a state trooper.

Calling hours for 27-year-old Nichole Walters are scheduled for Sunday afternoon at the Fergerson Funeral Home in North Syracuse. She’ll be buried in a Syracuse cemetery. Services are open only to family and friends.

State police say 32-year-old Justin Walters fatally shot his wife in the driveway of their home in Jefferson County last Sunday night. Authorities say he then gunned down 36-year-old Joel Davis moments after the trooper arrived on the scene while responding to reports of shots fired on the couple’s property in the rural town of Theresa.

Justin Walters is a staff sergeant with the 10th Mountain Division based at nearby Fort Drum.
