VAN BUREN, Ark. (AP) - A funeral will be held this weekend for a 16-year-old girl whose body was found in a barrel in western Arkansas.

Authorities found Angela Allen's body last week after she was reported missing earlier this month.

Prosecutors have charged 36-year-old Lloyd Jones in her death after authorities say he met Allen online and Allen's body was found on land owned by Jones' brother. Jones has pleaded not guilty.

Family friend Jackie Riley says Allen was a lovely girl who attended Butterfield Junior High School.

Visitation for Allen will be held Friday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ocker Funeral Home in Van Buren. A funeral is scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. at the funeral home's chapel. Burial will follow at Gracelawn Memorial Park.
