The funeral service is planned for a woman who was fatally shot by her estranged husband in Orrville last week.

Police said LaReece Woods admitted to killing 24-year-old Emily Young in front of her two children last Thursday.

According to police, she was sitting in her car talking to Woods just before 7 p.m. when he pulled out a gun and shot her multiple times. 

Woods turned himself in shortly after the shooting.

Young left behind three young children—a 2-year-old and 6-month-old identical twins.

The funeral service is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday at Spencer United Methodist Church. 

A GoFundMe account created in Young's name has raised nearly $20,000 since her death.
