LEWISVILLE (AP) - Funeral services for an American missionary couple slain in Mexico have been set for their home church near Dallas.

The funeral for John and Wanda Casias is scheduled for Wednesday morning at Liberty Baptist Church in Lewisville.

The Casiases were found dead Jan. 31 at their home in a village outside Monterrey, about 95 miles south of the Texas border and in an area plagued by violence.

Mourners already paid respects to the couple at the church in Mexico established in the early 1980s by the 76-year-old Casias and his 67-year-old wife. Both, originally from Amarillo, were strangled with an electrical cord, and she also had been beaten.

No arrests have been announced and Mexican authorities have said the case remains under investigation.
