Funeral held Saturday for kidnapping victim Jassy Correia


BOSTON (AP) — Family and friends have gathered at a Boston church for the funeral of a 23-year-old woman who was kidnapped and killed following an outing for her birthday at a nightclub.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh was among the crowd at the service for Jassy Correia on Saturday morning at Saint Peter Parish. A private burial followed.

The mother of a 2-year-old girl from Lynn, Massachusetts, was last seen leaving a Boston nightclub early on the morning of Feb. 24. Her body was found four days later in the trunk of a car driven by a Rhode Island man during a traffic stop by Delaware police.

Louis Coleman, of Providence, faces a felony kidnapping charge that carries the possibility of the death penalty upon conviction.

Coleman’s lawyer declined to comment Saturday.
