ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) - The family of Rock Hill slaying victim Latoya Cureton is holding another march for justice to raise awareness for violent crime.

The Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1TWF4Tc) that Cureton, who was 27, was found dead behind a home in August. She had been shot several times in the back.

On Saturday, the family plans to march 27 laps in a quarter-mile circle around Rock Hill’s Friedheim Park. The family held a similar, well-attended march in late September.

In October, 20-year-old Robert Daquan Johnson was charged in Cureton’s murder. However, prosecutors dismissed the charge a few weeks later.

Cureton’s family hopes the march will keep the case active in the minds of the community.

The family has created a nonprofit foundation called the Latoya Danielle Foundation meant to raise awareness about violent crime. More information is available at latoyadaniellefoundation.com.
