JESSUP — A candlelight vigil was held in Lackawanna County Sunday night to mark the death of a stabbing victim.

Family and friends of Lawrence Atkinson gathered at Kids Corner, a playground in Jessup to remember the teenager murdered.

Atkinson was stabbed to death two years ago during a fight with Dylan Ostrowski, 19,  of Carbondale.

Ostrowski pleaded no contest to manslaughter and is currently serving a 4 1/2 to 9 year sentence.
