Candlelight vigil held for stabbing victim

Mourners gathered on Thursday to remember a Brooklyn woman who was stabbed to death in May.



The cold, rainy candlelight vigil marked what would have been Toni Cox's 23rd birthday.



Cox was visiting a friend in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens when the friend's ex-husband came home in a rage.



Police say 35-year-old Alwasi Tyson stabbed her to death that night.



Tyson is due in court Friday morning.
