A tree was planted in memory of a murdered girl from Tracy Wednesday. Family and neighbors planted a tree at a park next to the elementary school Sandra Cantu attended.

This coming weekend will mark three-months since the 8-year-old was kidnapped and murdered.

Her body was found a week later and a woman who lived nearby is in custody, charged with Cantu's rape and murder.

U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer donated the crepe myrtle tree in pink -- Sandra's favorite color.
