Funeral services were held Wednesday morning for a woman who police say was killed by her mother-in-law.

Police went to the home to deliver an arrest warrant to the victim’s husband for a completely separate crime.

Authorities say Jefferson died from sharp force trauma to the neck.

Jefferson’s mother-in-law, Ginger Jefferson, is charged with first degree murder.

The 57-year-old is due back in court on Monday.
