AUGUSTA (WJBF) – Tonight, October 15th, the family of Melquan Robinson will hold a candlelight vigil in Augusta.

The 12 year old died a year ago today, when he touched an electrified fence at Fleming Park.

Last week his family settled with the city of Augusta, for one-point-five million dollars.

A memorial will be built in his memory at the park.
