Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - Family and friends honored the life of a young woman who was killed in Decatur Monday night.

Dozens of people came out to a candlelight vigil Wednesday night to remember Cesley Taylor. She was 21 years old. 

Stephanie Thompson, a relative, was among them.

"There's more to life than just arguing and hating each other, " Thompson told WAND News. "It's love that we're trying to show. Today is love."

A small march followed the vigil. 

Three people were arrested in connection with Taylor's death. She was killed in her Wellington Way apartment. A friend, who also lived there, was shot but survived.
