Appomattox Church to Hold Bell Dedication for 8 People Killed

Vigil for victims outside Appomattox courtroom Feb. 15

Appomattox, VA - An Appomattox church is dedicating a bell Thursday evening in honor of the eight victims of the mass shooting there three years ago.

Our Lady of Peace church will ring the bell at 6:15 p.m., then hold a memorial service to honor those killed.

Back in January 2010, Christopher Speight gunned down eight people at his home.

He pleaded guilty last month.

Thursday's dedication will be held outside in the memorial garden, and then they'll move inside for the service.
