Funeral set for abducted Md. girl
Funeral plans for an 11-year-old Maryland girl who allegedly was abducted by a registered sex offender have been set.
The funeral for Sarah Haley Foxwell of Salisbury will held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Emmanuel Wesleyan Church in Salisbury. Officials with Holloway Funeral home have said anonymous donors have offered to pay for the funeral.
Foxwell was abducted from her home Tuesday night. Her body was found on Christmas Day near the Delaware-Maryland border after a massive search that included more than 3,000 volunteers.
Thirty-year-old Thomas Leggs Jr. of Salisbury has been charged with kidnapping and burglary in the girl's disappearance.
Leggs has been ordered held without bond. Following a bond hearing Monday, he was returned to the Wicomico County Detention Center.
A preliminary court hearing on charges of kidnapping and burglary is set for Jan. 21. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Leggs also will face additional charges.
