Family holds funeral for 5 teen NC slaying victims

A large turnout is expected at the joint funeral of five teens killed in a North Carolina shooting rampage.

The service Friday is at a funeral home in the town of Pleasant Garden in central North Carolina, followed by burial at a Greensboro cemetery.

The children are victims of what law enforcement investigators believe was a shooting spree by 36-year-old Mary Ann Holder.

Officers say Holder apparently shot one of her sons and three other children while they slept at her Pleasant Garden home, shot and wounded her married former lover, then killed her younger son.

Holder then killed herself. She left two notes taking responsibility for the killings.

Her former lover survived his wounds and has returned home.
