THE funeral of a murdered 17-year-old girl is set to take place today.
A service for Georgia Williams is being held at All Saints’ Church in Wellington, Shropshire, starting at 2.30pm.
Georgia was last seen by her parents as she left the family home on Sunday May 26, telling them she was going to see friends.
Her body was found by police searching woodland off the Nant-y-Garth pass near Wrexham a few days afterwards.
A post-mortem examination revealed she died from pressure applied to her neck.
Jamie Reynolds, 22, of Avondale Road, Wellington, has been charged with her murder.
He is in custody and will next appear at Stafford Crown Court on September 6.
Earlier this month, friends and family announced the establishment of The Georgia Williams Trust, offering help and support to young people and organisations that were significant to Georgia and to create a lasting legacy in memory of the teenager.
