(CBS 8) - A family of three, found murdered in their home, will be laid to rest Wednesday.

Forty-one-year-old Catherine Alvarez and her two kids, Angelica and Hamid, were beaten and choked to death by her estranged boyfriend. He then killed himself by jumping off a bridge.

The funeral is Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Corpus Christi Catholic Church.

A family spokesperson says the funeral costs $53,000.

If you'd like to help, a memorial fund has been created in honor of the Alvarez family. Money raised will help pay for the funeral arrangements and any remaining funds will be donated to local domestic violence charities.
