WATERTOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — A candlelight vigil was held Friday to honor the two teenagers killed in a shooting inside their home in Watertown.
The Saturday night vigil held to honor the teens was a solemn event. Dozens gathered at Veteran’s Memorial Park.
Several volunteers etched out the teens’ names and a heart in the snow in the park that could be seen from the air.
15-year-old Della and 16-year-old Sterling Jette Jr. were murdered after an argument with their mom’s boyfriend, 42-year-old Paul Ferguson, which was later revealed to be about Ferguson’s smoking in the house.
After killing the teens, Ferguson took his own life.
Both teens attended Kaynor Technical High School in Waterbury. Their friends say Della and Sterling were loving and facets in their community.
