By AccessWDUN staff

As the investigation into a Gainesville toddler's murder continues, family members are trying to raise money for her funeral.

Valeria Jordan Garfias, who was just 2-years-old, died Sunday, Oct. 10 at a residence on Bennett Circle. Hall County Sheriff's Office investigators have charged a husband and wife -  who were supposed to be babysitting the child - with felony murder and child cruelty. The child's parents were at work at the time of the death.

The little girl's aunt set up a GoFundMe page with a goal of $10,000 for the funeral and related expenses. At publication time, donations totaled $795. The child's funeral has been scheduled for Friday, Oct. 15 

A message on the fundraising page said the parents wanted to keep details of the child's death private. The aunt requested prayer for the family.
