    Funeral services are planned for the five people shot to death last week in the small central Illinois town of Manchester.

    Services are set for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Daws Family Funeral Home in Roodhouse. Visitation will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

    James Roy Ralston and Brittney Luark, their children — 5-year-old Nolan Ralston and 1-year-old Brantley Ralston — and Luark’s grandmother, Jo Ann Sinclair were killed Wednesday at a home in Manchester about 50 miles west of Springfield. The suspected gunman was shot and killed after he shot at police.

    A 6-year-old girl, Kassidy Ralston, who survived the shootings, was in fair condition Sunday at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield. The hospital is no longer releasing information about the girl at the family’s request.
