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.

Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr raised more than a few eyebrows a year ago when he took the city into bankruptcy and predicted it would be out by the time his term expired in fall 2014. Because it is by far the largest city to file for municipal bankruptcy and the issues were so complex many experts predicted it would take years to resolve. But the city will take a major step toward that goal with a trial in federal bankruptcy court that starts Tuesday, Sept 2, 2014. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)
