Sheriff Eugene Crum Memorial Poker Run to take place Sunday

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The widow of slain Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum will participate in a memorial motorcycle ride that will pass by the parking lot where the lawman was fatally shot.

The Sheriff Eugene Crum Memorial Poker Run is set for Sunday afternoon starting in downtown Williamson. It's part of the three-day Rally in the Valley motorcycle gathering that began Friday.

Crum was shot April 3. His wife, Rosie, was named interim sheriff the next day. She'll ride in the procession with Mingo County Magistrate Dallas Toler.

The procession will pass through Eugene Crum's hometown of Taylorville. It also will head into Delbarton, where Crum once served as police chief, and Matewan, where he got his start in law enforcement as a police officer.

Organizers expect more than 200 motorcycles to participate.
