Appomattox shooting victims remembered at memorial service
Three of the eight victims of a killing spree in Appomattox last week are being remembered as a fun-loving family.
At a service Monday in Lynchburg, mourners shared their memories of Lauralee Dobyns Sipe, her husband Dwayne Sipe and their 4-year-old Joshua Sipe. More than 150 people filled Heritage Baptist Church for the service.
Services were held Sunday for 15-year-old Morgan Leigh Dobyns, Lauralee's daughter from a previous marriage. Funerals are planned this week for the other victims of the Jan. 19 rampage.
Thirty-nine-year-old Christopher Speight is being held without bond on a single murder charge. More charges are expected. The killings occurred at a home jointly owned by Speight and the Sipes.
