UT Students, Staff Pay Tribute to Slain Teen

University of Texas students and faculty gathered in Austin Monday to remember 18-year-old Haruka Weiser who was killed last week.

The university's community met at a drama building where Weiser was last seen alive on April 3 and later walked to where her body was found in a creek.

Organizers of this event said they want to send a message to "Stop Violence Against Women."

Meechaiel Khalil Crine, 17, was arrested Friday in connection with her death.

He is charged with her murder and is now held on a $1 million bond.
