Funeral arrangements are set for Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student whose body was found  earlier this week. 

Services will be held at Brooklyn, Guernsey, and Malcom High School in Tibbetts' hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. A mass of resurrection will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. local time

Tibbetts' body was found Tuesday after a month-long search and the autopsy shows she died from "sharp force objects."

Christhian Rivera, a 24-year-old man from Mexico,  has been charged with her murder. He worked on a dairy farm near Brooklyn.
