Domestic violence vigil set for Thursday

A candlelight vigil will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 29, on the steps of the Jackson County Courthouse, in honor of two recent domestic violence victims.

Kristy Huddleston and Liesa Werner each were killed by gunshot wounds Friday and Sunday respectively.

The event is open to the public.

Werner's assailant took his own life after the murder. Huddleston's husband, Bourne Huddleston, is held in the Jackson County Jail on numerous murder charges. Their deaths bring the number of Jackson County domestic violence fatalities since March 2011 up to 10, with six women and four children murdered.
