      Half-staff flags honor St. Louis-area soldier

      Governor Jay Nixon has ordered flags across the state to be flown at half-staff today in honor of a soldier from eastern Missouri who died in Afghanistan.

      The funeral for 20-year-old Pfc. Matthew Walker is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday at Manchester United Methodist Church in Hillsboro.

      Walker died June 5 in Paktika province, Afghanistan, after his unit was hit by enemy fire.
