Pews Packed At Service For Young Brothers

NORTH STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) _ The two Connecticut boys killed by their grandmother in a murder-suicide last week were remembered at a service featuring a slideshow of pictures from their short lives.

The Second Baptist Church in North Stonington was packed Tuesday with people who came to celebrate the lives of 2-year-old Alton Perry and 6-month-old Ashton Perry.

Police say the boys’ grandmother, 47-year-old Debra Denison, shot and killed them on Feb. 26 with a revolver before turning the gun on herself.

 The Day of New London  reports that the pews were packed and the walls were lined with people who couldn’t find a seat.

Relatives performed country songs and the readings included stories of biblical figures who lost their children for a greater purpose.
