SANTEE, Calif. (AP) - Calling their deaths "an abomination," a priest memorialized a mother and young son killed by a family friend who also abducted the woman's 16-year-old daughter.

The service Saturday for Christina Anderson and 8-year-old Ethan Anderson at the Guardian Angels Roman Catholic Church in Santee was open to the public.

The Los Angeles Times reports Rev. Kevin Casey told the memorial gathering that the community was "touched by this evil and we can never be the same again."

The mother and son were found at the home of James Lee DiMaggio, who set it ablaze earlier this month.

DiMaggio was killed by FBI agents Aug. 10 in the Idaho wilderness, six days after abducing 16-year-old Hannah Anderson, who was not physically harmed.

Authorities have declined to discuss a possible motive.
