Funeral for Kyla, Tania today

A FUNERAL for a mother and her five year-old child killed in a homicide-suicide recently will be held on the Gold Coast today.

Kyla Rogers was abducted from her bed on May 15 by her father Paul Rogers after he murdered his ex-partner Tania Simpson and friend Antony Way at a Robina unit.

Police believe Ms Simpson and Mr Way were stabbed to death.

Mr Rogers then drove to a roadside clearing just outside of Casino and gassed himself in his car with five-year-old Kyla in his arms.

All bodies were autopsied in Brisbane.

The funeral of Mr Way was held in Nerang on Monday.

A funeral for Ms Simpson and Kyla will be held at 1pm today at the Christian Family Church in Mudgeeraba.
