Funeral set for victims of plane crash


A funeral will be held Friday for two children killed when an airplane crashed into their East Haven home.

The children's aunt, Lawanda Middleton, says the service for 13-year-old Sade Brantley and 1-year-old Madisyn Mitchell is set for 10 a.m. at Trinity Temple Church of God in Christ in New Haven. Middleton is the sister of the children's mother, Joann Mitchell, who survived the accident in East Haven Friday.

The 10-seat plane crashed into two homes near Tweed-New Haven Airport during its approach.

Also killed were the pilot, 54-year-old former Microsoft executive Bill Henningsgaard, and his 17-year-old son, Maxwell.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The two homes are expected to be torn down this week.

Middleton says her family is grieving and isn't releasing any other information.
