ELKHART — Family and friends of Tiana Alter will gather Thursday evening for a candlelight vigil in remembrance of the slain Elkhart teen.

The vigil will begin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Roosevelt Center, 215 E. Indiana Ave., Elkhart.

Attendees are asked to bring candles and donations to help Alter’s family cover funeral expenses.

Alter was found dead in a home on C.R. 1 Saturday, Nov. 2. The coronor ruled her death a homicide and said she was killed by multiple sharp force injuries.

Michael Shoun, 26, was arrested at the scene on unrelated charges, but the Elkhart County Sheriff added a charge of murder to his arrest Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Maui County voters will decide in the next few weeks whether to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms, at least temporarily. A “yes” vote on the Nov. 4 ballot initiative would require large multinational companies that research new varieties of corn and soybeans in Maui to stop farming until they are able to prove their methods are safe. This could upend global agriculture giant Monsanto’s research pipeline for new varieties of corn and soybeans. (AP Photo/The Maui News, Matthew Thayer)
