A vigil was held in Petawawa Thursday to mark one year to the day when three women, Anastasia Kuzyk, Nathalie Warmerdam and Carol Culleton, were killed in the Wilno area.

It was on Sept. 22, 2015 when the bodies of the women were found within hours of each other.

Basil Borutski is charged with three counts of first degree murder.

He was found in rural Ottawa after a massive manhunt. Borutski is set to stand trial in September 2017.

Over the last few months, volunteers with the Women’s Sexual Assault Centre of Renfrew County made a commitment to be outside the Pembroke courthouse each time Borutski appears as a show of solidarity and a reminder that there is help out there for women.
