Glendale, Mo (KSDK) -- A Glendale mother and her two children will be buried this weekend.

Family, friends, and members of Mary Queen of Peace are invited to attend the funeral and burial for 11-year-old Mitchell Murch III, 9-year-old Mary Claire Murch, and 42-year-old Catherine Murch.

The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Cathedral Basilica. Burial will be at St. Peter's Cemetery in Kirkwood.

The wake is by invitation only.

Authorities say Mitch Murch called police Monday after hearing gunshots inside the family's house. He told authorities he found the bodies of his wife and two children, all with gunshot wounds.

Police originally said the deaths were being investigated as a case of murder-suicide. Lt. Tim Fagan of the Glendale police said Tuesday that an investigation continues.

Police have interviewed Mitch Murch, but Fagan says he isn't considered a suspect.
