NEWARK - The arrest of a suspect in the Christmas night murders in Newark coincided with the funeral service for one of the victims.

Hundreds of mourners packed the New Zion Baptist Church to bid farewell to Zainee Hailey, 13.

The teen was gunned down outside her Newark home while she was throwing out the trash.

Hailey's father says his upbeat little girl was his life, and that he finds some solace knowing police made an arrest.

Hailey used to volunteer at a summer camp. A memorial fund will be set up in her name so that each year a teenager can attend the camp for free
