(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.

The forecast for today will be very similar to yesterday: cooler, hazy, and sunny. The hazy sky is a result of the wild fires out to the west of us. Tonight should be cool as well with lows in the lower 60s and calm winds. Dry and sunny conditions continue into next week as temperatures stay seasonal. Highs look to stay in the 80s until midweek and the humidity will be moderate, feeling a lot more comfortable than last week.
