(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.

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