Memorial planned for slain Mont-Saint-Hilaire woman

Memorial planned for slain Mont-Saint-Hilaire woman

A vigil in honour of Mont-Saint-Hilaire woman Daphné Huard-Boudreault, who was stabbed to death Wednesday in her apartment, will take place next week at a local high school in the community southeast of Montreal.

The Facebook event page says Huard-Boudreault was "a ray of sunshine, which alone could light up the whole universe."

Sympathizers and people who knew her have been posting on the page.

A client of Dépanneur Beau-Soir in Otterburn Park where she worked posted that his thoughts were with Huard-Boudreault's family.

"She was always a very likable young girl," Jean-François Foley posted Friday morning. 

"Always a little, 'Hello!' followed by a pleasant exchange."

The event page invites all well-wishers to come pay homage to her memory on April 1 at 8 p.m.

Anthony Pratte-Lops, 22, was charged Thursday with first-degree murder in connection with her death.

Pratte-Lops did not enter a plea. The defence wanted to wait to evaluate more proof since it only received part of the evidence.

His next court appearance is April 19 and he has been barred from contacting the victim's family while detained.
