The body of a Mechanicville Marine killed in Afghanistan is expected arrived Tuesday at Dover Air Force Base.

LCpl. Anthony Denier was killed in action Sunday morning.

The Department of Defense says it will take up to a week before the 26-year-old's remains are flown home to Saratoga County on a private plane.

Denier joined the Marines 18 months ago.

Denier will be buried with full military honors at Saratoga National Cemetery.
