PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Funeral services are slated for three children killed when a sport utility vehicle that police said had been carjacked by two men plowed into a family selling fruit on a north Philadelphia street corner last month.
Police say Monday's services at Seventh-day Adventist Church for 15-year-old Keiearra Williams, 10-year-old Thomas Joseph Reed and 7-year-old Terrance Moore are to be followed by interment in Fernwood Cemetery.
Authorities said the children had been selling fruit for a church fundraiser at the time of the July 25 crash, which also injured their mother, a friend who was nearby and the woman who had been carjacked.
Twenty-three-year-old Cornelius Crawford and 19-year-old Johnathan Rosa are charged with murder, kidnapping, conspiracy, robbery, aggravated assault and sexual assault.
