Family and friends gathered at a Boston church for the funeral of a 23-year-old Massachusetts mother who was kidnapped and killed following an outing for her birthday at a nightclub.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was among those who attended the Saturday morning service for Jassy Correia at Saint Peter Parish in Dorchester. A private burial followed.
The mother of a 2-year-old girl from Lynn was last seen leaving a Boston nightclub early on the morning of Feb. 24. Her body was found four days later inside the trunk of a car driven by a Rhode Island man during a traffic stop by Delaware police.
Court documents revealed the young mother died of blunt force trauma and strangulation.
Louis Coleman, 32, of Providence, Rhode Island, was arrested and faces a felony kidnapping charge that carries the possibility of the death penalty upon conviction.
Coleman's lawyer declined to comment Saturday.
