Hammond, LA (WLOX) - The body of slain priest Edward Everitt was laid to rest in Hammond, LA. A funeral was held Saturday afternoon for Father Everitt at his parish, the Holy Ghost Catholic Church.
Friday night, hundreds turned out to a visitation at the church to say their final goodbyes to the priest.
Police say Father Everitt was killed with his own gun at a beach house in Waveland on Monday. The father was buried around 2:30 Saturday afternoon.
Meanwhile, the man accused of killing the 70-year old priest remains in Polk County, FL, awaiting extradition.
The Waveland Police chief said they hope to have 31-year-old Jeremy Manieri back in Mississippi next Wednesday, so he can have a hearing on Thursday in Municipal Court.
