LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Funeral services were held Saturday for the former Las Cruces police officer who was killed last week in a crash involving Colorado fugitives, both of whom were denied bond by a judge on Friday.  


Services for J.R. Stewart were held at St. Genevieve Church in Las Cruces. Mourners also lined a procession route to pay their respects as Stewart's body was taken to be laid to rest.

Stewart served in the Las Cruces Police Department for 35 years, and was described by LCPD officers as being "quite possibly the most loved and respected officer our community has known."
