LITTLETON - On Friday, a Littleton Police officer was laid to rest. Kevin Denner was killed while riding his motorcycle earlier this week.
9Wants to Know found out he was on his way to testify at the time and was hit by a suspected drunk driver. For that reason, police want his death to be designated a line of duty death. It would mean additional benefits for Officer Denner's widow and two young children.
There is no word yet on when a ruling could come on that.
His funeral comes on the same day the suspect will be in court for a bond hearing.
