Funeral services held for slain couple

Funeral services for Michael Muchiaki were held today at the Monumental Baptist Church in Jersey City.

Michael Muchiaki, 27, and his fiancée, Nia Haqq, 25, were both shot twice in the head while returning to their Jersey City home. The pair had just left their engagement party in New Brunswick. Authorities say the couple was killed following an apparent botched carjacking.

Muchiaki's mother told News 12 New Jersey everyone who knew the couple is devastated over the deaths.
