Family of fatal stabbing victim asking for donations

The family of a Lancaster County woman who was stabbed to death Friday morning is looking for donations for the five young children she leaves behind, and funeral costs. Police say 27 -year-old Melissa Joseph, a mother of five, was stabbed to death by her husband Carrington Joseph Friday morning in her Lancaster Township apartment. The children, ranging in ages from nine years old to five months old will now be cared for by Melissa’s family. Add to that the cost of the funeral and the  family says they simply need help.

“ I never ever thought in a million years I`d ever have to bury my child. So, this was unexpected and I can’t afford it,” says Kelly Cowan, Melissa’s mother

If you’d like to help the family, a fund has been setup through Wells Fargo Bank. You can go to any Wells Fargo location and ask for the Melissa Memorial Fund to donate.

Carrington Joseph is in Lancaster County prison without bail. He’s being charged with criminal homicide.
