Funeral set for 11-year-old found dead in NE Ark.

GOSNELL (AP) - A funeral is set for an 11-year-old Arkansas girl whose body was found in a ditch this week.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Jessica Williams' funeral is slated to take place Saturday at the Cobb Funeral home in Gosnell. The newspaper says visitation will start at 12:30 p.m., and the main service will begin at 2 p.m.

Authorities found Jessica's body in a ditch on Wednesday morning after she was last seen on Tuesday evening near Gosnell.

Authorities say a 17-year-old has admitted to killing Jessica. The teen is being held in jail on $2 million cash bond.

Prosecutors are expected to file a formal charge against the teen after authorities finish preparing a report on the case.
