The family of two victims of an apparent murder-suicide have set has scheduled a memorial to celebrate their lives.
The memorial for Theresa Yancey, 46, and her daughter Madison, 8, will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at Beachpoint Church, 17415 Magnolia St., in Fountain Valley.
Yancey and Madison were shot and killed by Randall Yancey, 40, Theresa Yancey's husband and Madison's father, before he killed himself, said Fountain Valley Police Sgt. Eric Orahood.
The shooting happened in the 9900 block of Dandelion Avenue just before 6 p.m. Friday.
