On Saturday, Hebert's high school classmates organized a candlelight vigil.

"They came up with the idea to let the luminaries go, and sing a couple songs, and let people talk, and say a poem. It was all driven by the kids," said principal John Kelly. (Video via WGCL)

Smith is being held without bond. Authorities have charged her with felony murder in Hebert's death.
