(Daily Mail) – Grieving friends and relatives of the murdered Miss Honduras beauty queen and her sister have said goodbye at a double funeral.

Maria Jose Alvarado, 19, was shot twice in the back as she tried to flee after seeing her sister, Sofia, 23, shot by her jealous boyfriend, police say.

In heartbreaking scenes the sisters’ mother, Teresa Muñoz, hugged the two wooden caskets after they were bought to her home at dawn.

More than 300 people attended the service, before the two women were buried in cement lined graves in a tiny cemetery near their hometown of Santa Barbara.
