Funeral for Arkansas anchorwoman set for Thursday

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The funeral for a TV anchorwoman who died after a brutal attack in her home is scheduled for Thursday in Little Rock.

KATV, the ABC affiliate where Anne Pressly worked, says the funeral will be at 11 a.m. at St. Andrew's Anglican Church in west Little Rock. The service is open to the public.

Pressly, 26, died Saturday from injuries suffered during the attack. Her mother found her badly beaten Oct. 20 a half-hour before Pressly was due on the air.

KATV established a reward fund for information. The station said the fund exceeds $33,000. Pressly's family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the fund or a scholarship fund established in Pressly's name.
