LAGRANGE, Ga. (WTVM) - A prayer vigil will be held tonight for 26-year-old Breanna Burgess.

The expectant mother and already mother of three was found stabbed to death in LaGrange earlier this week.

Two suspects have been arrested and are facing murder and feticide charges. According to police, the suspects, Curteze Avery and Shallandra Freeman, have known the victim for years. However, the nature of their relationship and the motive for her murder are still unclear.

Friends, family and the LaGrange community will gather to honor Burgess’ life with a candlelight prayer vigil and balloon release.

The vigil started at 7 p.m. on Fort Drive, near the campus of West Georgia Technical College, where her body was found.
