Mudgee woman Michelle Morrissey has been farewelled at a funeral this morning.
Family and friends of the 19-year-old gathered at the New South Wales town’s St Mary’s Catholic Church for the service.
Ms Morrissey was found dead in her home last month – 18-year-old Luke John Cotterill has been charged with her murder.
The Mayor of the Mid-Western Regional Council Percy Thompson says the Mudgee community is devastated by the teenager’s death.
He says many people wanted to pay their respects today.
“To lose someone so young in your community under such horrendous circumstances is something that’s really touching to everyone in the whole of the community,” he said.
