SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- A funeral was held Saturday morning for an 8-year-old boy who police said was beaten to death by his grandmother.

Sha'hiim Nelligan was remembered during a funeral at Schenectady Pilgrim Holiness Church in Schenectady. He was then laid to rest in Park View Cemetery.

Police said last weekend, the boy was beaten to death by his grandmother and legal guardian, Gloria Nelligan, 43.

Sha'hiim's family asks in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Schenectady Pilgrim Holiness Church in his memory.
