NYACK - A wake service was held this afternoon for Shannon Coleman at the Hannemann Funeral Home in Nyack.

Coleman was allegedly strangled last week by Nixon Bourguignon, a White Plains postal worker, in the apartment they shared on Forest Drive in Garnerville.

Coleman's two young sons were home at the time, but were unharmed. A scholarship fund is being set up for her two children.

A funeral service for Coleman will take place Friday morning at the First Baptist Church in Spring Valley.

The Rockland District Attorney has indicted Bourguignon on murder charges.
