CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) - More than 350 students at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill’s dental school will hold a day of service to honor a slain classmate and his wife.

Multiple media outlets reported that the students plan for DEAH Day to be an annual event. Deah Barakat and his wife, Yusor Abu-Salha were two of three people killed at a Chapel Hill apartment complex in February. North Carolina State University student Razan Abu-Salha was the other victim.

DEAH stands for Directing Efforts and Honoring Deah and Yusor, who was about to enroll at the school.

A neighbor of the three, Craig Hicks, awaits trial on murder charges.

DEAH DAY was planned by students who wanted to do something lasting to remember their classmate. It’s supported by the Dental Foundation of North Carolina.
