Wake service held for White Plains woman killed in Galleria Mall garage

Family and friends gathered Sunday for the wake service of the White Plains woman killed inside a Galleria Mall garage.

Those who knew 56-year-old Connie Russo Carriero say she was a loving wife, mother and a dear friend. Carriero's cousin says she was an incredible inspiration to all who crossed her path.

Police say 43-year-old Phillip Grant, a level 3 sex offender, stabbed Carriero in the chest Wednesday. Officials say the incident was a random act.

Carriero's funeral is scheduled for Tuesday at Saint Anthony's Church in West Harrison.
