Family and friends will gather today to say goodbye to 13-year-old Deontae Mitchell.

His funeral is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Second Ebenezer Church on Dequindre and 6 Mile in Detroit. 

Three people are charged with kidnapping, torture and murder in  connection to Deontae's death.

Gregory Walker - who is accused of choking Deontae - also faces a charge of premeditated murder.

Sources say he was drunk when he dropped $70 and went after Deontae and his cousin for picking it up.

Walker's girlfriend and her stepson could also face life in prison if convicted.
