A ceremony was held Wednesday to honor a sheriff’s deputy killed in the line of duty.
West Virginia law enforcement Officer Michael Todd May was remembered through the naming of an interchange on Interstate 70 in Mount Morris.
“This is a big deal for us, honoring one of our fallen officers,” said Chief Deputy Perry Palmer.
May was killed by a drunken driver two and half years ago as a police chase crossed state lines into Pennsylvania, police said.
“Michael was a fine boy, not a finer boy than him,” said family friend Wayne Schuman.
