CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia will hold a public memorial service for the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd on Friday at the state Capitol.

Gov. Joe Manchin's office says the body of Byrd will lie in repose at the Capitol's Lower Rotunda from 9 p.m. Thursday to 9 a.m. Friday.

Manchin spokeswoman Sara Payne Scarbro says the public is welcome to pay respect to Byrd during the 12-hour overnight viewing.

Friday's service will be held at the Capitol's North Plaza at 11:30 a.m. A public procession is planned for Thursday evening but Scarbro says details haven't been worked out.
