SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – A large group of people who loved 14-year-old, Harley Starling of Springfield gathered for a vigil Thursday night.

According to police the Springfield High School freshman was murdered by his 16-year-old brother Sunday night, in his bedroom and was found by his grandmother the next morning.
Authorities arrested the brother soon after and charged him with murder and tampering of evidence.

Those at the vigil for the young teenager shared memories of him and lit candles in his honor.
“We hope he’s here with us today. It’s like a celebration of his life of the little life that he lived,” said friend, Savannah Marcum.
