Candlelight vigil to be held to honor murdered woman

TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- Monique Williams, the woman police say was killed by her ex-boyfriend Aaron Newport, will be remembered tonight.

Friends and family were stunned by the news that she was murdered in her Pasco home.

We spoke with three of her co-workers. They're still grieving over the loss of their friend.

"She was such a beautiful soul," said Amanda Smiley. "Why anybody would think they need to take that away from us - I still have to tell myself."

A candlelight vigil will be held Friday night at 8:30 at John Dam Plaza in Richland. Anyone wanting to pay respects to Williams is welcome to join.
