Community gathers for funeral of boy killed in burglary

A central Kentucky community has gathered to say a final goodbye to a 6-year-old boy who was stabbed to death during a burglary.
    
News outlets report that on Friday, mourners filled the stands and the field at Falling Springs Recreation Center, where Logan Dean Tipton played football.
    
His white coffin was adorned by white and yellow flowers. His football jersey was mounted in a frame in front of it, and his helmet rested atop.
    
A Woodford County grand jury indicted 32-year-old Ronald Exantus on Wednesday with murder, first-degree burglary, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree assault. Police say he stabbed Tipton Monday in the boy’s home while he slept.
    
Versailles police Lt. Michael Fortney has said detectives have found nothing to connect Extanus to the family or the town.
