Town Mourns Snowy Death of Little Girl

JEROME, Idaho (AP) - Friends and relatives have crammed into an
Idaho church to mourn 11-year-old Sage Aragon, who died while
trying to trudge through 10 miles of snow on Christmas Day to reach
her mother.

At Wednesday's service, a relative asked for forgiveness for Sage's father, who's charged in her death and the injury of her brother.

The girl died, apparently of hypothermia, after she and her 12-year-old brother tried to walk through snow and freezing temperatures to their mother's house after their father's car got stuck in a snowdrift.

The boy survived. The girl was pronounced dead Friday.

Robert Aragon and his cousin are charged with second-degree murder and are being held on bond.
