THERESA, N.Y. (AP) — Funeral arrangements are still being finalized for the New York state trooper who was fatally shot while responding to reports of gunfire at a northern New York home.

State police say Trooper Joel Davis was shot once in the torso moments after arriving at the Jefferson County home of Justin and Nichole Walters around 8:30 p.m. Sunday. Officials say he was the first trooper to arrive after gunshots were heard at the couple's home in the town of Theresa.

The 36-year-old Davis died about an hour later at the hospital in nearby Watertown. Nichole Walters was found dead on her home's driveway. Police say the 27-year-old mother of one had been shot multiple times.

Justin Walters, a member of the 10th Mountain Division at nearby Fort Drum, has been charged with two counts of murder.
