LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A funeral service is scheduled Tuesday afternoon in Logan, Utah, for 5-year-old Elizabeth Shelley, a homicide victim who disappeared May 25 and whose body was found Wednesday less than a block from her home.

Her 1 p.m. funeral at the Nyman Funeral Home in Logan will be preceded by a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. Saturday on the historic Cache County Courthouse’s front steps and public viewings from 6-8 p.m. Monday and 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

Interment at Logan City Cemetery will follow the funeral.

Alex Whipple, a 21-year-old uncle of the girl, is charged with killing her.
