LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A vigil is being planned Friday in remembrance of Brittany Grosse who was murdered Friday, Nov. 30 in Lake Charles.

The vigil is being planned by UniteWomen.org, a women's rights group with chapters around the nation, including in Louisiana.

The Louisiana branch is organizing the event at the Lake Charles Civic Center seawall from 8:15 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday.

According to Lake Charles Police, Dustin Belast Pleasant, 26, of Lake Charles, has been accused in the case and is charged with second-degree murder.

In a Monday press conference, Lake Charles authorities said Grosse died of blunt force trauma and wounds from a cutting instrument.

Lake Charles Chief of Police Don Dixon said motive is not yet known. Grosse and Pleasant worked together at Big Daddy's Sports Grill in Lake Charles.

Grosse was a student at McNeese State University. Her funeral is Thursday.

According to Renee Davis of UniteWomen.Org Louisiana, Lake Charles Mayor Randy Roach, Chief of Police Don Dixon and Sheriff's Office representatives have been invited.
