Gov. Joe Manchin has ordered the lights on the exterior of the West Virginia Capitol dome to be turned off in a tribute to the late Senator Robert C. Byrd.

Manchin's order Monday is effective indefinitely.

Manchin says it's a fitting way to honor the country's longest-serving senator.

Byrd died Monday at age 92 in a Virginia hospital.
