Funeral Services for Wisconsin Principal

CAZENOVIA, Wis. (AP) -- Hundreds of people are packed into the Weston school gym where a funeral is getting underway for the principal.

Students wearing Weston letter jackets and football jerseys mix with adult mourners at the service for Principal John Klang, shot to death at the school Friday.

Governor Doyle is also in attendance.

Sheriff's deputies directed traffic outside where the fields around the school are filled with cars.

A freshman student, Eric Hainstock, is charged with shooting Klang just inside the high school entrance Friday. A criminal complaint says Hainstock was upset with Klang because the principal had disciplined him for having tobacco in the school the day before and teachers hadn't stopped a group of kids who had called him names.
