A Kentucky soldier killed in Iraq was buried Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery.

Staff Sgt. William Allers III was assigned to the Army National Guard's 198th Military Police Battalion, 75th Troop Command.

Allers died north of Baghdad on Sept. 20 when an improvised explosive device detonated near his convoy vehicle.

Allers' father, eight-year-old son, grandmother, brother and pregnant widow attended the ceremony.
