Funeral services Friday for murdered woman, son

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Funeral services for Dewona Green and her 12-year-old son will be held on Friday, May 2 at Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church, 9700 Scenic Highway, in Baton Rouge.

Visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The funeral starts at 1.

Green, 40 and her son who lived in Gonzales were reportedly killed by her estranged husband, Ronald Green Sr.  on April 17. Officials say he broke into the home and shot them.  Green then allegedly called a woman and told her he had just killed his wife and son and he was going to jump off a bridge into the Mississippi River.

Detectives found his car at the top of the bridge, but Green's whereabouts are still unknown.

A memorial fund was set up last week to help cover the costs of the funeral.
