President Bush has signed the bill
ordering the removal of a convicted killer's remains from Arlington
National Cemetery.

The White House Web site says the legislation was signed Friday.

Vietnam Veteran Russell Wagner was convicted of fatally stabbing
Daniel and Wilda Davis at their Hagerstown home in 1994. He died of
a heroin overdose in prison last year, and his body was cremated.

Wagner's ashes were placed at Arlington at the request of his
sister. The Davis' son Vernon fought for 16 months for Wagner's
remains to be removed from the place of honor.

The measure ordering the removal was part of a 3.2
billion-dollar veterans bill that was approved by the House and
Senate earlier this month.
