Madison, IN soldier killed in Iraq being laid to rest

A young Indiana soldier will finally be laid to rest after being killed in Iraq.

People lined the street in Madison Tuesday as the body of 22-year-old Jon Menke returned to his hometown.  Menke was killed last week when a bomb went off as his Military Police Company was on a patrol.

Menke's funeral was Thursday morning at Madison High School.

Indiana governor Mitch Daniels is among those paying their respects.
