Posted: Updated:
UNDATED (WJRT) - (05/16/14) - We have some sad news to pass along.

We've just confirmed through the Michigan State Police that the father of a slain trooper has died after his battle with cancer.

Paul Butterfield's son, Paul Butterfield II, was shot and killed in the line of duty last fall.

Just recently, the shooter, Eric Knysz, was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole. He then hanged himself in a prison cell and later died.

The elder Butterfield was also a retired trooper.
