Funerals for a Nova Scotia murder-suicide case

A funeral service took place yesterday for Lionel Desmond and his mother Brenda — and the funeral for his wife Shanna and their 10-year-old daughter Aaliyah will be held today in Tracadie.

Desmond — a former Afghan war veteran suffering from post traumatic stress disorder — shot the two women and the girl before turning a gun on himself in Upper Big Tracadie last week.
