Sandra Bland's family laid her to rest at an Illinois funeral service this morning. Hundreds arrived at a small church in Lisle to remember the African-American woman who died in a Texas jail after being arrested for a minor traffic violation.

Police say she committed suicide in her cell; Bland's family disputes that.


Here are some of the images from the morning, including family members arriving for the services.
