An Alabama girl who police say was kidnapped and slain is being remembered at a service in Birmingham.

The funeral of 3-year-old Kamille McKinney was set for Sunday afternoon at New Beginning Christian Ministry.

The 700-seat church is less than 10 miles from a public housing project where the girl known as “Cupcake” was abducted from a birthday party on Oct. 12.

The child’s body was found amid garbage 10 days later. Authorities have charged a man and a woman with kidnapping and capital murder in her death.
