Oak Creek Police To Be Pallbearers at Tosa Officer's Funeral

The Oak Creek Police Department honor guard unit will handle the casket of slain Wauwatosa police officer Jennifer Sebena, according to a WISN-TV report.

Oak Creek officers said they were assigned as pallbearers, the "highest honor," because they have a trained honor guard unit, the station reported. Most Oak Creek officers didn't know Sebena, but feel like they lost one of their own, according to the report.

The visitation begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at Elmbrook Church.

Sebena, 30, was murdered in the early morning hours of Dec. 24. Her husband, Benjamin Sebena, has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide.
