NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Nearly 200 people have packed a Connecticut church for the funeral of two young siblings who authorities say were killed by their mother and found dead in a home filled with natural gas.

The service for 7-year-old Daaron Moore and his 6-year-old sister, Aleisha Moore, was held Tuesday at Varick Memorial AME Zion Church in New Haven. Burial followed at a cemetery in Easton.

Their bodies were found in their East Haven home on June 2. How they died still hasn't been determined.

Their mother, LeRoya Moore, is detained on murder charges and wasn't allowed to attend the funeral. Police say she was found at the home with arm injuries resembling suicide-attempt wounds.

Court documents say Moore left a note saying she was sending the children to heaven.
