A vigil will be held in remembrance of Marcelo Lucero on Sunday at United Methodist Church in Patchogue.
Lucero, an Ecuadorean immigrant, was stabbed near the Patchogue train station shortly before midnight on Nov. 8, 2008. A group of teenagers attacked Lucero, with one of them, Jeffrey Conroy, fatally stabbing the 37-year-old. Conroy was convicted of manslaughter as a hate crime and is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence.
The annual vigil, which was re-scheduled due to Hurricane Sandy, marks the fouth anniversary of Lucero's death.
The vigil will run from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the church located at 10 Church Street.
Following the ceremony Sunday, a procession will head to the location where Lucero was stabbed at the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Unity Place for a moment of silence.
