Funeral Set for Ohioan Killed in Theater Massacre

A native of Springfield killed in the Colorado theater massacre will be buried this week.

The Springfield News-Sun reports a visitation for 27-year-old Matthew McQuinn will be Friday at the Springfield church he attended before moving to Colorado last year.  This funeral will be Saturday morning.

McQuinn was watching the new Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," with his girlfriend, Samantha Yowler, and her older brother when the Friday shooting rampage occurred.  An attorney retained by their families has said the men covered Yowler with their bodies as bullets flew.
