Funeral scheduled for children killed in Israel

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A funeral has been scheduled for a brother and sister fatally stabbed in Israel where police say the children's father confessed to the crime.

The children, 10-year-old Sara Levy and her 11-year-old brother, Yishai (yi-SHEYE'), lived with their mother in Ohio and attended Columbus Torah Academy.

A funeral was scheduled for Wednesday at Beth Jacob Congregation in Columbus with burial to follow.

Police in Israel say the children's father, whose name hasn't been released, confessed to killing the children last week and led police to their bodies.

Details on a motive have not been released. The father was divorced from the children's mother, who had moved to Ohio.
