Memorial will honor Nadya Veillette, 4 children

(MASON, OH) -- Details are now set to honor a Mason mom and four children who police say died at the hands of their father.

A memorial for Nadya Veillette and her four children: Marguerite, Vincent, Jacob and Mia, will be built in a park behind Mason High School. A memorial garden will be built in Corwin M. Nixon Park.

The memorial should help the community, who is still mourning this tragedy

Back in January, Nadya and the children died in a fire at their Mason home.

Their father, Michel, was awaiting trial for stabbing his wife to death and then setting the fire when he took his own life at the Warren County Jail.

The park board in Mason recommended using the space, which is near the practice area Marguerite used for her cheerleading practices.

The design has spring flowering trees and summer perennials plus a bench and a engraved memorial rock.

All the supplies and labor will be donated. There's been no timetable as to when this will be finished. Meghan Mongillo
