Ron Johnson

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

Ronald Johnson, who many friends and colleagues simply called "RJ," was working at the state Penitentiary on his 63rd birthday.  Authorities say two inmates killed Johnson in an unsuccessful escape attempt. They face murder charges. 

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.
