RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Virginia lawmakers took a break from their work at the General Assembly to honor a State Trooper who was killed in the line of duty last month.

The House of Delegates reconvened Wednesday for the veto session to tackle issues, such as transportation and text and driving. However, they took time to welcome the family of Master Trooper Junius Walker, as well.
