HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The funeral service for Huntsville murder victim Ashia Oliver will be at 2 p.m. on Monday, June 30.
The service will be held at Union Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. Interment will be in the Valhalla Memory Gardens.
Oliver, 18, was shot and killed early Wednesday morning at Sunoco gas station on Pulaski Pike. Officers pronounced her dead at the scene.
