MOSS POINT, Miss.–The funeral for deputy U.S. Marshall Josie Wells, 27, who was killed while trying to arrest a man wanted for murder in the Baton Rouge area, will be Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Wade Baptist Church in Moss Point. Visitation will be Monday from 6 to 9 p.m.
Wells will be buried at Davis Chapel Cemetery.
He was killed Tuesday and the man his fellow marshals say shot him died at the hospital a day later, after he was charged with murder.
Wells, who graduated from Jackson State University, leaves behind his wife Channing and an unborn son.
Wells had been a marshal since he graduated JSU in 2011.
