ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California sheriff is apologizing to the family of a deputy who was killed during a shooting rampage, saying he failed to uphold his promise to return the deputy home safely at the end of his shift.

But Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones told Danny Oliver's family at Monday's memorial service that Oliver would never be forgotten.

KCRA-TV reports Jones was among thousands of law enforcement officials who attended the service at the Adventure Christian Church in Roseville.

Prosecutors filed murder charges last week against two Utah residents in the deaths of Oliver and Placer County sheriff's Detective Michael David Davis Jr. The two deputies were killed during the shooting Oct. 24 that also left a motorist and a third deputy wounded.

A memorial service for Davis is scheduled for Tuesday.
