Memorial set in Columbus for crime victims

A Victim Memorial Service will be held 2-4 p.m. Sunday on the Chattahoochee Riverwalk behind Golden Park at South Commons.

Sponsored by the Victim Witness Program in the district attorney's office, the event is part of the 2009 National Crime Victims' Rights Week.

Julia Slater, district attorney for the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit, will attend the event. Kellie Wiggens, the sister of a homicide victim, is the guest speaker.

At the end of the service, more than 100 multicolored butterflies will be released on Riverwalk.
