The family of Justin Plackowski has announced funeral services for the Naperville 7-year-old, who authorities say was stabbed to death by his mother in a horrific double murder last week.
A notice posted on the website of Justin's school, Scott Elementary in Naperville District 203, invited members of the school community to the services saying, "It is the family's hope that you will be able to attend services and remember Justin with them."
A wake will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday at St. Elizabeth Seton Church, 2220 Lisson Road in Naperville. Justin's funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday, also at St. Elizabeth Seton Church.
