Whitehall Twp. groom laid to rest

Man stabbed by fiance on wedding day

Groom laid to rest

Family and friends paid their final respects Thursday to a man who was fatally stabbed in Lehigh County just hours before his wedding.

The funeral for Billy Brewster got under way around 11 a.m. in Berwick, which is about 75 miles northwest of Allentown.

Police have charged Brewster's fiancee, 31-year-old Na Cola Franklin, in the murder, which happened last Saturday on Olympic Circle in Whitehall Township, Lehigh Co.

Court papers say Franklin was about to leave to get food when the two got into an argument.

Franklin remains behind bars.
