Police officers from around the region gather to pay their respects and offer a final salute to their comrade, Des Moines Police officer Steven J. Underwood, who was shot to death after stopping four teenagers on Pacific Highway South in the early morning hours of March 7. He was the first law-enforcement officer in Washington to be killed in the line of duty this year. He left a widow, Rosathe, and their young son, Esteban. Charles S. Champion, 18, has been charged with first-degree aggravated murder and is being held without bail in the King County Jail. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against him.

At a graveside service in Lynnwood, Alevtina Solovieva embraces the casket holding her daughter, Anastasia King, a mail-order bride who was found dead near Marysville. King's husband, Indle King, Jr., is charged with first-degree murder in her death. Daniel K. Larson, who also was charged with first-degree murder in the case, recently pled guilty to a reduced charge of second-degree murder in exchange for testifying against Indle King at his trial next month. Larson claims he strangled Anastasia with a necktie as her husband held her down. She was last seen alive when she and Indle cleared U.S. Customs after visiting her family in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan. Her parents have said she was planning to divorce King, whom she met through an overseas matchmaking service and married in April 1998.

The Seattle Mariners' star player needs no introduction to these young fans at John Stanford International School. Ichiro Suzuki gets a huge hug from second-grader Ryan Hale as other students gather 'round. Ichiro, who came to Seattle from Japan's major leagues, was one of several players who visited local schools for the team's fourth annual Education Day last spring. Since then, Ichiro has been voted American League Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player.
