MACON, Ga. (AP) — Macon, Georgia’s City Council has approved plans to place a bench in a city park in memory of slain Mercer University law school graduate Lauren Giddings.

The Telegraph reports that the council approved the plan Tuesday with a unanimous vote.

A memorial ceremony for Giddings is scheduled for Aug. 25 in Washington Park.

Stephen McDaniel is charged with the June 2011 slaying and dismemberment of 27-year-old Giddings, who was from Laurel, Md.

McDaniel has pleaded not guilty. McDaniel was a law school classmate and neighbor of Giddings.
