Friends held a fundraiser in West Central Fresno Sunday to help the family of a murder victim.

Volunteers came out to the Park View Market on Belmont and Highway 99 to wash cars for donations to pay for the funeral of Michelle Jimenez.

Deputies say Jimenez was killed by her 23-year-old boyfriend, Gabriel Rosiles.

Authorities found her body Thursday in a Fresno County home.
