NH memorial set for Newtown gunman’s mother

KINGSTON, N.H. (AP) — A memorial service is planned in New Hampshire for the mother of the gunman who killed 20 students and six educators at a Connecticut elementary school before turning the gun on himself.

Adam Lanza shot his mother to death at their home just before his December rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

The police chief in Kingston, N.H., where Nancy Lanza once lived, says a memorial service is planned for her Saturday at First Congregational Church. He says only friends and family are invited.

A private funeral for Lanza was held in town less than a week after the Dec. 14 shootings.
