EAST FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) - A dedication is planned for a memorial to a 23-year-old Pennsylvania state trooper who was killed in the line of duty last year.

WJAC-TV reports a dedication for the Trooper Landon Weaver Memorial is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday in Freedom Township. The Freedom Township Supervisors and the Freedom Township Police Department are sponsoring the event.

Weaver was shot Dec. 30 at a home in Hesston while investigating a report of a domestic protection violation. Police said Jason Robison killed the trooper. Police later tracked down Robison and fatally shot him when he threatened officers and failed to follow their orders.
