The body of Army Staff Sgt. David Kuehl will arrive in Fargo today, officials said.

Kuehl, a resident of Wahpeton, N.D., was killed by an improvised explosive device that detonated near his unit on May 22 in Taji, Iraq.

Kuehl's casket is expected to arrive at the Fargo Jet Center at 1 p.m. today, said Dan Parker, the center's manager.

From there, Wahpeton police will escort Kuehl's casket to Joseph Vertin & Sons funeral home in Breckenridge, Minn., said Wahpeton police Investigator Bill Straus.

Straus said Wednesday evening that the schedule is tentative and exact plans for Kuehl's arrival might change with little or no notice.
