Memorial for slain Va. family

A pedestrian bridge in a Richmond park has been named in memory of four family members who were murdered in 2006.

Nearly 200 people attended a dedication ceremony for the Harvey Family Memorial Bridge in Forest Hill Park on Sunday.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Bryan Harvey, his wife Kathryn, and the couple's daughters, 9-year-old Stella and 4-year-old Ruby, lived near the park and often went there.

The family's bodies were found in the basement of their burning home on New Year's Day 2006. Authorities say the family was slain by Ricky Jovan Gray and his nephew, Ray Joseph Dandridge, as part of a violent rampage.

Gray awaits execution, while Dandridge is serving life in prison without parole.
