Funeral Tuesday for young stabbing victim

The funeral for Sasha Ray, the 2-year-old DeKalb County girl stabbed to death earlier this week, will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Raleigh Rucker Funeral Home on Candler Road.

The girl was found badly injured behind her family’s Waldrop Trail townhouse Monday, and she was pronounced dead at a local hospital. She had been stabbed seven times, according to police.

Sasha's 13-year-old half-sister, who was supposed to be babysitting the toddler, was arrested and charged with murder.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is not naming the juvenile even though she has been publicly identified and charged as an adult.

An account has been set up in Sasha’s name to help the family with funeral costs. Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank to the Sasha Lamaya Ray Memorial Fund.
