HOUSTON (AP) — Mourners gathered today to remember a Harris County sheriff’s deputy killed in a traffic accident.  

Services were held for Deputy Jesse “Trey” Valdez III earlier today. 

Valdez died Oct. 29 following the wreck that investigators say involved a woman driving an SUV that crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the deputy’s patrol car.

Harris County jail records show Kelly Joe Ivey is being held Tuesday without bond on charges of possession of a controlled substance and a motion to revoke parole. Prosecutors say Ivey was released from prison last month after serving time for drug possession.

Valdez was laid to rest at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery in Houston.
