CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- U.S. and West Virginia flags at state facilities are flying at half-staff in honor of U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd.
The 92-year-old Democrat died early Monday at a Virginia hospital.
Gov. Joe Manchin ordered the flags to be lowered to commemorate Byrd's life and service.
In the nation's capital, flags at the White House and the U.S. Capitol also flew at half-staff Monday.
Manchin says Byrd made a significant mark on the histories of both West Virginia and the nation.
