CAPTION ONLY: A TRAGIC ENDING TO A TRAGIC LIFE

Jannie Fields, grandmother of Robert Sandifer, an 11-year-old murder suspect who, according to police, was killed execution-style by fellow gang members, leaves a funeral service for him Wednesday in Chicago. More than 400 said a final goodbye on what was to have been his first day back at school. Police have portrayed the youngster as a boy marked for disaster from his earliest days when he suffered abuse at home. Robert's mother, a former addict, sat quietly during most of the service, wearing dark glasses.
