(St.Joseph,MO) Missouri Air Guardsman Cody Harter was laid to rest Friday morning by friends, family and military veterans at the Word of Life Church.

The twenty-three year old veteran was fatally stabbed alongside MO-291 Highway and I-470 in Lee's Summit on Saturday, May 5. Harter owned his own lawn care business and was picking up equipment for work when he got into an alleged confrontation with another driver and the situation quickly became violent. Fifty-eight year old Nicholas Webb was later charged with second degree murder and armed criminal action.

Harter was a member of the Air National Guard for six years and had served in Iraq. The 139th Airlift wing provided full military service, including a 21 gun salute, a C-130 aircraft fly over and the presentation of the American flag to the Harter family.

The funeral processional was guided by 208 motorcyclists from various veteran groups.

Harter is survived by his parents Michael and Kerrie Harter, sister Kylee Harter and fiance Shelby Berkemeier.
