MANHATTAN - The East Harlem football star who was brutally murdered hours before his graduation last week is expected to be buried on Thursday, according to a report.

The funeral for Isayah Muller, 19, will be held at 10 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church at 457 W. 51st St. in Midtown, WNBC/Channel 4 said.

Before that, there will be viewings at Barrett Funeral home, across the street from the church, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday and then 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Muller, who lived in the Jefferson Houses, was stabbed to death last Tuesday at a Bronx parking lot soon after his graduation from Truman HS, which he helped lead to a PSAL bowl title last year.

His father, Andre, had become angry after he discovered a bottle of colonge missing from his car and drove back to the M.T. Jerome Town Corp. garage on Jerome Avenue.

There he allegedly confronted a pair of workers, grabbed a snow shovel and began beating one. In the fracas, his son was stabbed to death.

Andre Muller faces assault and other charges.

The attendants have not been charged.
