Vigil for murdered sisters

Mourners will gather on a beach tonight to remember two young sisters found slain in a Victoria-area home on Christmas Day.

The District of Oak Bay has organized the candlelight vigil at Willows Beach, saying in a release that the deaths have shaken the community and the event will be an opportunity for people to come to gather in grief and love.

Police were called to a residence in Oak Bay, near Victoria, on Monday evening where the bodies of two children were discovered.

A friend and a family member have identified the girls as Aubrey Berry, 4, and her sister Chloe Berry, 6.

Family friend and spokeswoman Trisha Lees says the girls were full of energy, smiles and giggles.

Police have said an injured man, whose condition has not been disclosed, was found inside the home and taken to hospital.

CTV Vancouver Island confirmed the injured man was the girls' father

The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit said Wednesday the man was in hospital but was not in police custody.

A vigil was held in Kelowna for two young girls and their mother who were found dead in a Rutland home on Dec. 19. The husband of the dead woman, and father to the two girls, has been charged with three counts of murder.
