School of slain boy announces wake, funeral

NAPERVILLE, Ill. — The family of a 7-year-old Naperville boy stabbed to death last week has made plans for his wake and funeral.

Scott Elementary School's website indicates that Justin Plackowski's family has scheduled a wake between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Monday at St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Naperville, with the funeral to be held at the church at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

The boy and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski were found stabbed to death last week. Plackowski's mother, Elzbieta Plackowska, has been arrested and charged in their deaths.

Authorities say Plackowska has confessed to the slayings.

Funeral arrangements for the young girl haven't been made public.
