MILWAUKEE (AP) — The wife of a Milwaukee police officer who was shot to death while serving a search warrant has revealed she's pregnant.

Police say Caroline Rittner found out three days after her husband's funeral that she is going to have a baby. The girl is expected to arrive in October.

Officer Matthew Rittner was killed Feb. 6 while helping serve a search warrant for suspected illegal guns and drugs at a Milwaukee duplex.

Suspect Jordan Fricke has pleaded not guilty to three charges, including first-degree intentional homicide. He's scheduled for trial beginning July 8.
