Family of Yale fiance to avoid holiday services

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Relatives of the man who lost his fiancee to a killer at Yale University say they will observe this month's Jewish holidays in private as they grieve for her.

The family of Jonathan Widawsky said Thursday that they will not attend services for the "foreseeable future" at their temple on New York's Long Island.

They said they want to "facilitate the safety, security and sensitivity" of services at Temple Beth El.

Widawsky was to marry 24-year-old Annie Le on the day her body was found in a research building at the Connecticut campus. Police arrested and charged a lab technician Wednesday with murder.

The family also thanks people who were involved in preparations for "a wedding that was not to be."
