MEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — A peace garden named after one of the people killed in the Boston Marathon bombing will be unveiled next weekend in Massachusetts.

Krystle Campbell was a 29-year-old restaurant manager from Medford when she died in the attack on April 15, 2013.

Medford Mayor Stephanie Burke will join former Mayor Michael McGlynn and other state and local officials to showcase the Krystle Campbell Peace Garden on Sunday at the Medford Senior Center.

Speakers will also pay tribute to the two other people killed in the bombing, as well as an MIT police officer killed by the bombing suspects several days later.
