Family, Classmates Say Goodbye to 12-Year-Old West Hartford Girl

Family, friends, and classmates gathered Saturday to say goodbye to the 12-year-old West Hartford girl who died in a domestic attack at her home last month.

Brigid Curtin was stabbed to death by her twin brother in the attack on Dec. 17, 2018, inside the family's Stoner Drive home, according to West Hartford police.

Brigid's mother, Janemarie Murphy, was also stabbed and suffered serious injuries, police said.

Mourners arrived at St. Patrick - St. Anthony Church in Hartford on Saturday afternoon for a funeral mass for Brigid.

"Today they celebrated a beautiful mass to honor their dear daughter, Brigid. Her wonderful life - all too brief life - that touched so many," family spokesperson Chuck Coursey said after the service.

Brigid was a seventh-grader at Sedgwick Middle School.

The family was also especially touched and moved by Brigid's teammates and classmates who came to the service today to pay their respects to their cherished friend," Coursey said.

Brigid's 12-year-old brother has been charged as a juvenile with murder with special circumstances and first-degree assault.

Police have not said what led to the attack.
