Deputy killed in line of duty honored in SW Ohio


LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — A granite memorial and a section of highway in southwest Ohio have been dedicated to a sheriff’s deputy killed in a high-speed chase.

Dozens of law enforcement officers and members of the public joined Sgt. Brian Dulle’s widow and three children at the ceremony Friday at the Warren County sheriff’s office in Lebanon.

The 36-year-old sheriff’s deputy was killed in May 2011 when he was struck by a fleeing vehicle while he was trying to stop the driver.

Marcus Isreal of Middletown was driving the vehicle and later found guilty of murder. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

State Rep. Ron Maag dedicated the section of road along U.S. 42 as the Sergeant Brian Dulle Memorial Highway.
