Prayer service to mourn the loss of Tammy Jo Blanton

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A community will come together to mourn the loss of a woman who was brutally murdered last week.

A vigil will be held for Tammy Jo Blanton Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church in Jeffersonville, Ind.

The pastor with the church says they have planned an organized prayer service.

He says this will be the tenth vigil they've held for someone in the community.

The church came back together in 2005 after a brutal crime shocked the neighborhood.

Police say Blanton's ex-boyfriend Joseph Oberhansley killed her and then consumed some of her body parts.

Oberhansley is charged with murder and mutilating a corpse.
