    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.  

    Hundreds had attended a vigil for Correia held on Thursday, and hundreds more, including Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, attended a wake for her on Friday.

    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.
