SACO (AP) — Hundreds of Maine residents gathered for a prayer vigil honoring the memory of a Saco mother who was fatally stabbed last week at a supermarket.

About 400 people were at the Cornerstone United Methodist Church in Saco Sunday night to grieve for 59-year-old Wendy Boudreau.

Police said Boudreau was killed Wednesday at a Shaw’s supermarket by 31-year-old Connor MacCalister.

MacCalister was arrested and charged with murder. He appeared in court Friday. He did not enter a plea and was ordered held without bail.
