Funeral to be held today for Nova Scotia police officer killed off duty

STELLARTON, N.S. — A funeral service will be held today for a Truro, N.S., police officer whose body was found in a wooded area near a Halifax bridge.

The service for 36-year-old Catherine Campbell will be held at 2 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in her hometown of Stellarton, N.S.

Campbell was reported missing last Monday when she failed to show up for work.

Halifax police recovered her body last Wednesday.

Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Calvin Garnier is charged with second-degree murder in Campbell's death.

He is also charged with indecently interfering with a dead body.
