Vigil Held for Pawtucket Murder Victim

A candlelight vigil was held in Pawtucket Saturday, to remember a woman who was found murdered a week ago.

More than 100 friends and family members gathered at Slater Park, in memory of 30-year-old Brooke Verdoia.

Verdoia was found beaten to death in her home on Rufus St. in Pawtucket. Her 2-year-old Daughter was found by her side, but the child was not physically injured.

The case is being handled as a domestic violence homicide, and advocates for the abused called Saturday's vigil essential.
