Funeral Held in Kentucky for Nun Killed in Mississippi
A funeral mass was held this morning for Sister Paula Merrill, one of two nuns stabbed to death last week.
The service was held in Kentucky where Merrill, who was 68, first took her vows to serve.
Sister Merrill and Sister Margaret Held were found stabbed to death last week at their home in Mississippi. A man confessed to the crime but gave no reason to investigators for the crime.
Sister Merrill, who was a nurse as well as a nun, was part of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth for 34 years.
