Obukhov sisters remembered at vigil in Bedford
BEDFORD - Hundreds gathered in Bedford Monday night at a vigil for two young girls who were killed last month.
6-year-old Lizzy and 8-year-old Katy Obukhov were the victims of a murder-suicide. According to the Attorney General's Office, their mother - 34-year-old Nina - shot and killed the girls before turning the gun on herself.
A vigil at the Bedford Presbyterian Church celebrated the girls' lives. Letters written by teachers and classmates were read as candles were lit. The family did not attend, but a letter was read on their behalf.
Organizers say the vigil was meant to help the children cope with the tragedy and say goodbye.
