DENVER (AP) - People are invited to pay their respects to former Lt. Gov. Joe Rogers at the state Capitol on Tuesday.
A procession will arrive at the state Capitol at 11:30 a.m. and Rogers' body will lie in state there until 5 p.m.
Rogers died suddenly last week after going to the emergency room. He was 49.
The Republican served as Gov. Bill Owens' first lieutenant governor and was the last lawmaker independently elected to that office.
The two clashed in office, leading lawmakers to change the law to allow the governor to pick a running mate.
His funeral will be held 11 a.m. Wednesday at Rising Star Baptist Church in Aurora.
