CARTERSVILLE, GA (CBS46) -

A funeral will be held in Cartersville for the 1-year-old who died from injuries caused by abuse.

Journey Ann Cowart's funeral is scheduled for 3 p.m. Monday at Liberty Square Church in Cartersville.

Her parental grandparents said the public is welcome and many people will be wearing Justice for Journey T-shirts.

The child's mother, Brandy Boyd, 25, and her boyfriend, Austin Payne, 25, remain in jail in connection to the crime.

Cowart's father, Blake, drowned last Spring in the Etowah River.

The child's grandparents said her autopsy revealed Journey Ann had healed from previous injuries, but had fresh broken bones and internal injuries that included a laceration to the liver.
