The teacher who turned herself into police for a hit-and-run accident is scheduled for arraignment on the same day the little boy she killed was laid to rest.
Family and friends gathered Wednesday at Laurel Land Memorial Chapel to say their goodbyes to 6-year-old John Paul Raidy.
Grand Prairie police said 53-year-old Tammy Lowe, a seventh grade teacher, admitted to hitting him with her car at the intersection of North Carrier Parkway and Holiday Hills and then taking off.
One man whose son played for the same football organization as Raidy said he still can't believe a teacher, someone trusted with kids, claimed responsibility for what happened.
"I really can't say on the news what I thought about it. It wouldn't be appropriate," Sean Martin said. "I was devastated. I can't believe a teacher that kids look up to could do something and wait five days to turn herself in."
Lowe is expected to be formally charged on Wednesday with manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid. Both are felonies.
