ESSEX, Vt. (AP) - A gathering of family and friends has been scheduled for a 14-year-old Vermont boy who was killed by his father last month.

The family of 14-year-old Gunnar Schumacher of Essex said the group is invited to meet from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Essex Alliance Church on Old Stage Road.

The Rev. Albert "Skip" Baltz conducted a private funeral for Schumacher last month.

Police said Ludwig "Sonny" Schumacher killed his son before killing himself. Their bodies were found Dec. 18.

John Workman of the A.W. Rich Funeral Home in Essex tells the Burlington Free Press a celebration of life ceremony will be held on behalf of Gunnar at a future date.
