DONALDSONVILLE, La. (AP) - A funeral for the 6-year-old Harvey girl who was stabbed to death last week has been set.
The service for Ahlittia North will begin at 11 a.m. Monday at the First Baptist Church of Smoke Bend in Donaldsonville.
The Advocate reports the little girl was reported missing early Saturday. A search for her ended late Monday when investigators found her body inside of a trash can a few doors down from her mother's apartment.
Police have arrested her stepfather's nephew, 20-year-old Matthew Flugence, on a count of first-degree murder. His brother, 21-year-old Russell Flugence, has been booked with obstruction of justice for allegedly withholding information about the slaying.
