Dayton signs bill naming road for slain officer
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton called Tom Decker "a true American hero" as he signed a bill to rename 11 miles of State Highway 23 after the slain Cold Spring police officer.
Decker's wife, Alicia Decker, and several local elected officials participated in the signing ceremony Tuesday. The Legislature passed the bill unanimously last week. Decker was shot and killed on a call in downtown Cold Spring last November.
