Chasse's family focuses on healing

The family of James Chasse, who died in police custody last month, planned to focus on Chasse's life during a candlight vigil for the man Friday night.

Family members said the vigil was designed for healing -- healing for the family as well as the community at large.

They asked that any anger toward police be placed aside during the vigil as they reflect on what kind of person Chasse was.

The case generated a lot of controversy and finger-pointing after the officers who were involved were cleared of any criminal wrongdoing.
