A crowd of 125 marched through downtown Lumberton as part of an event to focus attention to domestic violence.

Sunday evening’s march was also a celebration of the life of Lumberton native Kewaii Rogers-Buckner, shot to death in March in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Her husband, Donnell Buckner, is charged in her slaying.

Police and relatives say her death was the culmination of months of verbal and physical abuse.
