ELKTON, Ky. (AP) -- A memorial for a 9-year-old girl who was beaten to death has been installed at the western Kentucky school she attended.
The stone bench placed at South Todd Elementary on Monday includes a photo of Amy Dye and the dates of her birth and death.
Principal Camille Dillingham told the Kentucky New Era (http://bit.ly/LMQomP) that it has been difficult for the school to cope with the death and she appreciates the donation.
Retired dump truck driver Mike Taylor organized funding for the monument after hearing about the child's death last year. Dye's adoptive brother, Garrett Dye, pleaded guilty to killing her.
The case has received wide attention because school officials had reported suspicious injuries to Dye multiple times in the two years prior to her death.
