The bodies of two missionaries murdered in Mexico were returned to North Texas on Sunday.

Wanda and John Casias were slain at their home outside Monterrey on Tuesday. Their children flew home with their parents' bodies Sunday morning.

The couple were members of a Lewisville church, but they called Mexico home for the past 30 years, founding four churches in one of that country's most violent regions.

The couple's daughter told News 8 a memorial service is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday at Liberty Baptist Church in Lewisville.
