HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A ceremony is planned at the state Capitol complex to honor a Connecticut soldier recently killed in Afghanistan.

On Thursday, a photographic portrait of Army Capt. Andrew Pedersen-Keel of Madison will be added to the Wall of Honor tribute, located between the state Capitol and the Legislative Office Building.

The 28-year-old Special Forces commander was killed in March when an Afghan policeman opened fire inside a police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan.

A ceremony, led by Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, is scheduled to take place in the Legislative Office Building atrium, where the names of all service members on the wall will be read. Their family members will have the opportunity to deliver remarks.

The memorial wall was started in 2007.
