The funeral service will be held at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at St. Ambrose Catholic Church, located at 380 S. Federal Highway, also in Deerfield Beach.

Two men accused of killing Barbara and Philip Russo made their first appearance in court Friday. Investigators said 60-year-old Rosario Melici of Lake Worth knew the couple.

Detectives said Melici and 38-year-old Michael Marotta, Melici's tenant, were booked into the Broward County Jail and charged with murder.
