BRUNSWICK, Md. (AP) - A candlelight vigil is planned Friday night for a Frederick County woman found dying in her front yard.

The vigil is planned to begin at 5 p.m. at Brunswick High School, where 67-year-old Lillie Morris worked as an instructional assistant.

Morris died Monday as she was being rushed to the hospital. Maryland State Police troopers had found her bleeding from multiple stab wounds after getting a 911 call about someone lying in a front yard in Jefferson.

Morris’ granddaughter, 19-year-old Hestina Harris, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in Morris’ death on Wednesday. No attorney is listed for Harris in court records.

Morris’ friends and family said she was “a force for good” in her community, and that “to know her was to love her.”
