Funeral held today for 3 Que. children

Funeral services will be held today for three Quebec children found dead last weekend in a home in Drummondville.

The funeral will be held in the town of Acton Vale.

Earlier this week a pile of plush toys were placed on the lawn in front of the home where the children's bodies were discovered.

Mourners also placed a porcelain angel and several white candles emblazoned with the words "hope," "faith" and "love" on a couple of the lower steps.

The children's mother, Sonia Blanchette, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of five-year-old Lorelie, four-year-old Loic and two-year-old Anais.

The 33-year-old woman will undergo a psychiatric assessment to determine if she's fit to stand trial. Her next court appearance is Dec. 14.
