The funeral for deceased Boston Marathon Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev will be held at a funeral home in Worcester and Tsarnaev's widow, Katherine Russell is helping with the arrangements according to the funeral home.

Peter Stefan owner of Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors in Worcester said Friday that his funeral home is handling the arrangement for Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev's body was moved from the Dyer-Lake Funeral home in North Attleboro overnight to Graham Putnam and Mahoney Funeral Parlors.

The funeral home has experience with Muslim Services. Stefan said he feels that everyone is entitled to a funeral service. He said he will take care of the cost if the family for some reason is unable.

According to Stefan, he is working with Tsarnaev's uncle Ruslan Tsarni along with his widow on the arrangements.
