Grieving members of the Fort Wayne, Ind., community will gather Thursday evening to pay their respects to 9-year-old Aliahna Lemmon, who authorities say was brutally murdered by her babysitter during late December.
Earlier today, Michael Plumadore, the man accused of killing the young girl, pleaded not guilty to murder charges, according to the Associated Press. Plumadore previously confessed to committing the crime and is charged with murder, abuse of a corpse, and removing a dead body from the scene of a crime.
Memorial services will take place at 7:00 p.m. at the First Assembly of God church, according to the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
Funeral services are still not finalized, ABC-57 reports.
