Hundreds of people gathered in Alexandria, Wednesday night, for a candlelight vigil to remember a young mother.

Emilie Maheu, 26, disappeared after work, on October 11 in Alexandria. She was found dead two days later in a field.

Maheu's former partner, who is the father of her 22-month-old daughter, is charged in her killing. Brandon Smeltzer, 25, of Nova Scotia has been charged with first-degree murder.

A GoFundMe page, set up for Maheu's daughter, has already surpassed its $5,000 goal.

A memorial service for Maheu is scheduled for Saturday at 11 a.m. in Alexandria.
