Next week marks six years since the deaths of murdered Knox County couple Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.
The couple was carjacked, raped and tortured on January 6, 2007. They were killed separately the next day.
We told you previously the family of Channon Christian is inviting the public to join them for a memorial service at Highland West Memorial Park.
Now the family of Chris Newsom is extending the same invitation.
The Newsoms will hold a memorial service Sunday afternoon at 3 at Woodhaven Memorial Gardens in Claxton. The family is encouraging everyone who comes to bring a balloon to release in his memory.
Channon Christian's memorial service will be at 5:30 Monday night at Highland West Memorial Park in West Knoxville.
