LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- A memorial for Figo, the K9 partner of fallen Bardstown police officer Jason Ellis, will be held Friday night.

Phillips says Figo died peacefully in his sleep in May.

The memorial service will begin at 6 p.m. at the Bardstown Police Department and proceed to the Highview Cemetery in Chaplin, Ky.
