Visitation and funeral arrangements have been set for a sheriff's deputy killed in the line of duty.

Sergeant Eric Stein, 39, was killed Monday during a standoff at a home in rural Sigourney.

Visitation will be from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday at Sigourney High School.  The funeral will be on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at Sigourney High School.  He will be buried at Springfield Cemetery near Delta. 

The Division of Criminal Investigation says Stein was shot in the head by Jeff Krier, 53, when he, Sheriff Jeff Shipley and Deputy Casey Hinnah went to Krier's home to talk about an incident that reportedly happened Sunday night.

Hours later, they say Krier was shot by members of the Iowa State Patrol Tactical Unit and died from his injuries.
