Funerals Set For Minn. Teens In Murder-Suicide

PERHAM, Minn. (AP) — Funerals have been set for two teens killed in a murder-suicide in western Minnesota.

A visitation will be held for 16-year-old Tabitha Belmonte on Sunday evening in Perham. The Forum newspaper says her funeral will be Monday.

Services will be held Saturday for 17-year-old Dylan Cox, who authorities say turned the gun on himself after shooting Belmonte multiple times. She was dead at the scene, and Cox died at a hospital in Fargo, N.D.

Students at Perham High School, where Belmonte was a sophomore, will hold a candlelight vigil for their slain classmate Thursday evening. On Friday morning, the school will hold an assembly where a law enforcement official will address rumors.
