Westboro church to protest local funeral

After the state has suffered the loss of four local soldiers, a well-known church has announced it will protest one of their funerals.

The Westboro Baptist Church will be protesting outside the funeral of 2nd Lt. Jered W. Ewy.

Ewy,33, was killed last month in Afghanistan after his unit was attacked with homemade bombs.

Ewy leaves behind a wife and a newborn.

The church congregation will be protesting the funeral on Thursday, August 11, 2011 at Henderson Hills Baptist Church in Edmond.

The group's attorney says they will be at the intersection of E. 2nd St. and W. I-35 Frontage Rd. from 9:15 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The Edmond Police Department has been asked to provide security for protesters against any retaliations.
