Visitations, funeral set for Franklin couple police say were slain by grandson


FRANKLIN, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - Visitation and a funeral Mass have been set for a Sandycreek Township couple who police say were slain by their 13-year-old grandson.

Funeral home visitation for 69-year-old George Fross and 67-year-old Dorothy Fross is scheduled Thursday at a funeral home in Franklin, not far from the Sandycreek Township home where they were shot on Sunday. Their funeral will be Friday at 11 a.m. at St. Patrick Church, also in Franklin.

Their grandson, Zachary Proper, of Oil City, has been charged as an adult with shooting the couple after claiming they spoke ill of his mother.

The boy remained in the Venango County Jail, also in Franklin, on Thursday.

The boy's attorney still has the right to ask a judge to consider moving the case to juvenile court.
