LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A mother of three stabbed to death in her home is expected to be buried later today.

Family and friends returned to the apartment of 23-year-old Jovona Dawson for a vigil.

She was killed there last week. Her six-year-old daughter woke up to find Dawson's body in the kitchen.

Dawson's neighbor, Michael Hayes, has been charged with murder and tampering with physical evidence.

Her family is raising money to pay for her funeral, and to support her children.
