Ron Johnson

SIOUX FALLS, SD - Funeral preparations are underway for the South Dakota correctional officer killed in an escape attempt on Tuesday.

Visitation starts Friday at 8 a.m. and goes through 9 p.m. at the Miller Funeral Home in Sioux Falls. Funeral services are Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Rushmore Room of the Ramkota Inn.

Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking that all flags in South Dakota be flown at half-staff from 8 a.m. until sunset Saturday in Johnson's honor.
