EAST HAVEN - Two homes hit by a plane Friday are expected to be demolished this week.

Investigators say four bodies, including three children, have been recovered at the site in East Haven.

Sade Brantley, 13, and her sister, 1-year-old Madisyn Mitchell, were inside one of the houses when the plane crashed and were killed.

The Rev. Thomas Sievel, of St. Vincent de Paul Church, plans to organize a fund to help Joann Mitchell, mother of the two children killed. He says Mitchell lost everything in the house she rented and, with no renters insurance, requires a sufficient amount of money to replace her belongings.

Funeral services for the girls will be held Friday in New Haven.

The pilot, Bill Henningsgaard, and his 17-year-old son, Maxwell, were also killed in the crash.

Federal investigators say Henningsgaard was about to land when he crashed. They also say there are no obvious signs that anything was wrong with the plane.

The National Transportation Safety Board says a final report on the crash, including a cause, could take up to a year to complete.
