Brief public service to be held Friday where JBLM soldier was fatally stabbed in Lakewood

Staff writerOctober 9, 2013 

A brief public service Friday will mark and reclaim the space in Lakewood where a Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier was fatally stabbed Saturday, Associated Ministries said.

They'll gather in honor of Tevin Geike, 20, at 10 a.m. at 12500 Pacific Hwy. SW.

The group marks places where homicides occur with bamboo poles and colored ribbons, and asks clergy to vest for the services, called Moments of Blessing.

They aim to support the friends, family and community affected by homicides.

Three men, also soldiers, have been charged and pleaded not guilty in Geike's death.
