KATHLEEN, Fla. (AP) - The families of two slain Tampa police officers will split about $70,000 donated at a weekend fundraiser.
The Saturday barbecue in Kathleen raised money for the families of Jeffrey Kocab and David Curtis. The 31-year-old officers were slain June 29 during a traffic stop. A recently released felon has been charged with their murders.
Kocab's wife is nine-months pregnant and is a dean at Kathleen Middle School. Curtis left behind a wife and four sons.
