SEBEWAING, MI (WNEM) -

A candlelight vigil is being planned for the victims of the double murder-suicide last week in Huron County.

It happened on Feb. 15 on the 500 block of Beach Street in Sebewaing.

Sebewaing PD Chief William Owens said the incident unfolded about 1 a.m. He said his office was asked by a family member to check on the house and that's when officers discovered the three bodies. 

“Looking through one of the windows we saw what appeared to be a body down in the downstairs,” Owens said.

Owens said the victims are long-term residents of Sebewaing and own a carpet cleaning business. Officials have identified them as Bob Bonini, 61, Margo Bonini, 60, and Katelyn “Katie” Bonini, 21.

Officials believe Bob killed Margo and Katie before turning the gun on himself.

The vigil is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 25th at the Northside Neighborhood Park at 7:30 p.m.

There will be prayers, a moment of silence, songs, and a special performance by some of Katie’s friends.

Donations are being accepted to go towards a bench memorial in Northside Neighborhood Park.

A Facebook event page has been set-up here.

The last homicide in Sebewaing happened in the 1970s, Owens said.
