Deputy Marshal Robert Cheshire and Marshal Kenneth Muir were shot and killed in North Dakota while attempting to serve an arrest warrant on a man for parole violation and income tax evasion. Three others men with the suspect were involved in the shootout. One was shot and wounded and the other two were apprehended and sentenced to life in prison.

Four months later the suspect shot and killed Sheriff Harold Matthews, of the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department, Arkansas. Sheriff Matthews was participating in a raid in an attempt to arrest the man.

Deputy Cheshire was a U.S. Navy veteran.

Deputy Marshal Chesire,
On today, the 32nd anniversary of your death, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as an LEO-but when you served in the USN as well. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
