Funerals Held for Four KY Children


Funeral services were held in Kentucky over the weekend for four young children allegedly killed by their father this week.

Dozens of people gathered at the Islamic Center in Elizabethtown Saturday to say goodbye to the youngsters in a traditional ceremony.

The children, three girls and a boy ranging in age from 8 to 2, were wrapped in white sheets and placed on tables. They were then buried in separate graves in an unnamed Muslim cemetery in Hardin County.

Their 42-year-old father is accused of murdering the youngsters Friday in their Louisville home. According to the county coroner, all died of multiple sharp force trauma.

Said Biyad is charged with four counts of murder and one count of assault, for allegedly beating his estranged wife who immigrated from Somalia with him.

Investigators say the couple had recently argued over the children. A bail hearing for Biyad is set for October 17th.
