Community mourns two girls stabbed to death 

Funerals are being planned this week for the two little girls in Zion, Illinois, who were stabbed to death in a park.

Visitation will be held tomorrow night for nine-year old Krystal Tobias with a funeral on Saturday. Sunday will be the funeral for eight-year-old Laura Hobbs, whose father is charged with both murders.

Prosecutors say Jerry Hobbs has admitted beating and stabbing the girls in a rage because his daughter was out playing when she was grounded. They are casting doubt on his claim that his daughter's friend had a knife that he snatched away and that was used in the stabbings.

Hobbs is being held without bail while a grand jury reviews the evidence in the case.
