    Memorial services were held Friday for Wanda Rosa, who police say was strangled by her ex-boyfriend while their 4-year-old son watched in Methuen, Massachusetts.

    Hundreds gathered at the Diaz Healy funeral home in Lawrence to say their goodbyes to Rosa, while police continue to search for the man who killed her.

    According to court papers, Rosa was in bed with her son by her side. The little boy told police "Daddy went crazy and choked mommy."

    Police have issued a murder warrant for the arrest of Emilio Delarosa. He allegedly covered Rosa with a quilt and took his son to his grandmother's house.

    Delarosa is still at large. Police are asking for help finding him. Anyone with information is asked to call the Methuen police.
