Hundreds are expected to attend the funeral for 6-year-old Logan Tipton, who was murdered in his Kentucky home Monday. 

Ronald Exantus, 32, of Indianapolis, is accused of killing the kindergartner while he was sleeping in his bed.

Tipton's funeral was originally going to be held at a church, but was relocated to the Woodford County Football Stadium in his hometown of Versailles. 

It is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. 

Thursday night, the line was out the door during a visitation for Logan. The 6-year-old loved football, so the funeral home created a makeshift football field. 

As many were saying goodbye to Logan at the visitation, less than one mile away, a group of high school students were putting on an orchestra concert in an effort to raise money for the family.

The concert was prearranged with the Salvation Army, but after Tipton's death, students wanted to split the proceeds with the Tipton family. 

In just three days, an online fundraiser has raised more than $48,000 for Tipton's family.
