Island to be named after slain toddler

GALVESTON, TX The Hitchcock City Commission decided yesterday to name the land after the murdered three-year-old, who was known as '/*Baby Grace*/.' Riley's mother and stepfather are in charged with her murder.

The case received national attention and the small island in Galveston Bay became a shrine to the girl's memory.

The naming of the island is a response to a petition with more than 4,000 names.
