Hundreds attend Conn. vigil to honor 2 slain boys

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Hundreds of people have attended a vigil in Connecticut in honor of two young brothers who were killed by their grandmother before she committed suicide.

The vigil held Friday night in North Stonington was also held to support the boys' parents, Jeremy and Brenda Perry.

The Day of New London reports that Jeremy Perry told the crowd: "Your support is probably the only reason we're still on our feet right now."

Police say Brenda Perry's mother, Debra Denison, left a suicide note and took a revolver from her house Tuesday before picking up 2-year-old Alton Perry and 6-month-old Ashton at their day care in North Stonington. Their bodies were found in a van hours later after a frantic search.

The medical examiner's office says the boys had multiple gunshot wounds
