Funeral arrangements are set for slain Chicago Police Officer Thomas Wortham IV.
Visitation for the fallen officer will be held this Thursday at the Leak & Sons Funeral home from 3 to 8 p.m. The wake is scheduled for 12 p.m. on Friday at the Trinity United Church of Christ, followed by the funeral at 1 p.m. Wortham will be buried at Lincoln Cemetery in Alsip.
The Chicago Memorial Foundation recently gave $50,000 to his family in honor of his memory, the Sun-Times reports. Wortham was an Iraq-war veteran.
Meanwhile, the two suspects charged in his death, Paris McGee and Toyious Taylor, were in court Monday for their arraignment hearing. The State's Attorney, however, asked for a continuance until June 10. McGee and Taylor will remain in custody until then.
