New Law Allows Funeral Homes to Pay for Homicide Burials

Legislation signed Friday is easing the loss both emotionally and financially for families who lose a loved one to homicide. The new law allows funeral home businesses to pay for burial costs on behalf of a family and then recover those expenses from the Office of Victim Services, which provides a financial safety net for innocent crime victims and their family members.   The Office of Victim Services can provide up to $6,000 for burial expenses.
