Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputy to be laid to rest

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Visitation services for the Lubbock County Sheriff's Deputy killed in the line of duty began at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday.  D. Robert Harvey, 29 died early Sunday morning when a suspected drunk driver crashed into his patrol car.

Harvey's family will receive family and friends until 9:00 p.m. Tuesday at Calvillo Funeral Home. That's located at 206 East 19th Street.

Harvey's funeral will be held Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church. That's located at 2201 Broadway. The funeral will be followed by a procession of local, area, and state law enforcement to Resthaven Memorial Park for graveside services.

A memorial fund has also been set up in Harvey's name to help his wife and two young boys. You may donate at any branch of City Bank.

Meanwhile, the man charged with Harvey's death remained behind bars at the Lubbock County Jail Tuesday evening on a $500,000 bond. A trooper from the Department of Public Safety escorted Justin McKinney, 25 into the jail around 7:00 p.m. Monday.  The Lubbock County District Attorney's Office obtained a warrant for his arrest late Monday after charging him with intoxicated manslaughter. 

Doctors released McKinney from University Medical Center just hours before his arrest. His arm was in a sling as he walked inside the jail.  The other person in McKinney's truck, Justin Walkup, 24 remained in serious condition at UMC Tuesday evening.

Corporal D. Robert Harvey served with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office since October of 2001. Sheriff David Gutierrez called Harvey a friend and devoted public servant, and he says that Harvey made the ultimate sacrifice for his community.
