OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Labor Commissioner Mark Costello’s body will lie in repose in the second-floor rotunda of the state Capitol.

Gov. Mary Fallin’s office said the casket containing Costello’s body will be on display at the Capitol from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday. Visitors are asked to use the southeastern entrance to the Capitol. A candlelight vigil will be held on the south steps at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Costello died Sunday night. The state medical examiner’s office determined Costello died from stab wounds to the neck and classified the death as a homicide.

One of Costello’s sons, 26-year-old Christian Costello, is being held in his father’s death. Police say the two men argued at a restaurant and that the younger man pulled out a large kitchen knife and attacked his father.
