Thousands of people are expected this morning at a funeral for slain Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor. The services are being held at a Florida International University arena.

Yesterday, mourners attended a wake, followed by an evening vigil at the University of Miami, where Taylor's skills made him an idol.

Four men are charged in Taylor's death. Taylor died last Tuesday one day after an apparent robbery gone wrong.

As one mourner put it, "We lost one of our best."

Meanwhile, four young men charged with killing Taylor remain jailed on the other side of the state.

All four have been charged with unpremeditated murder, home invasion with a firearm or another deadly weapon and armed burglary. They will be transported to Miami, though authorities haven't said when.
