NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A funeral service has been held for a Lebanon couple who were fatally injured when a package exploded at their home.

Seventy-four-year-old Jon Setzer, a retired lawyer, was killed by the package bomb that detonated at his Lebanon home on Feb. 10. Seventy-two-year-old Marion Setzer died later at a hospital.

Sellars Funeral Home in Mount Juliet confirmed that a funeral for the couple was held Saturday in Nashville at the First Church of the Nazarene.

Family members say they have received an outpouring of support.
