BROOKLYN - Loved ones will say their final goodbyes today to an 18-year-old girl who was stabbed to death in East New York. 

Tanaya Copeland's funeral will be held at 4 p.m. at the Bethlehem Baptist Church, followed by her burial.  

Investigators say they're still looking into whether Copeland's death is connected to the stabbings of two young children in the same neighborhood about a week later. Police have arrested 27-year-old Daniel St. Hubert in connection with those stabbings. 

The teen's mom, Rochelle Copeland, says her daughter had just accepted a summer youth job and wanted to finish her nursing degree.
