    Funeral, Sikh Ceremony Scheduled for Slain Texas Deputy
    Harris County Sheriff's Office
    Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal, left, was killed Friday in Texas. He is seen here with former Sheriff Adrian Garcia of the Harris County Sheriff's Office.

    Services will be held this week for a Texas sheriff's deputy who was fatally shot during a traffic stop.

    The Harris County Sheriff's Office says the funeral for 42-year-old Deputy Sandeep Dhaliwal will be Wednesday at the Berry Center in Cypress, near Houston.

    Dhaliwal, who was slain on Friday, was the first Sikh deputy on the force.

    A sheriff's statement says a Sikh religious ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. A law enforcement ceremony starts at 11:30 a.m. Both are open to the public.

    The suspect, 47-year-old Robert Solis of Houston, has been charged with capital murder and was being held without bond Sunday.

    Records show Solis, who has an extensive criminal history, was wanted for 2017 parole violations for assault and possession of a prohibited weapon.

    He's been ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation.
