TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Mourners are remembering three children who died in a Toledo murder-suicide that police say was orchestrated by their grandmother and uncle.

The Blade (http://bit.ly/T7uF9j ) newspaper in Toledo reports that more than 100 people attended a funeral for the children Monday in suburban Sylvania.

Police say it appears the murder-suicide was planned at least four days in advance and stemmed from a dispute over where the children should live.

Firefighters a week ago found the bodies of 5-year-old Madalyn Hayes, 7-year-old Logan Hayes and 10-year-old Paige Hayes slumped inside a car along with their grandmother and uncle.

A coroner ruled all five died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
