HIGH RIVER, Alta. - A regimental funeral is planned for an Alberta peace officer who was killed in the line of duty.

Rod Lazenby was a bylaw enforcement officer for the Municipal District of Foothills southwest of Calgary, but he was also a retired RCMP officer.

He died last Friday after responding to a complaint on a property near Priddis, Alta.

The property's owner, Trevor Kloschinsky, is charged with first-degree-murder.

The funeral is to be held at 2 p.m. Aug. 24 at the Highwood Memorial Centre in High River, Alta.

A release from the municipality says the service will be open to the public and members of the law enforcement community.
