Funeral for slain teacher

Posted: Updated:

Funeral services Monday for a slain Massachusetts teacher with ties to Vermont.

Colleen Ritzer, 24, was remembered as a person who made others feel loved and optimistic. About 400 students from Danvers High School attended the funeral mass in her hometown of Andover. Police say the math teacher was murdered in a school bathroom last week -- a 14-year-old student is charged. Ritzer's father is from Northfield and she still has siblings in Vermont.
