DENVER — Flags have been ordered to fly at half-staff across Colorado on Wednesday in honor of a Denver soldier killed earlier this month in Afghanistan.

The Pentagon says Army Staff Sgt. Liam Nevins of Denver was killed Sept. 21 during combat operations.

Gov. John Hickenlooper ordered flags to fly at half-staff from sunrise to sunset.
