Andre Jackson was visibly shaking when he went before a Houston judge on Monday.

A memorial for Josue still stands in the neighborhood where he was killed. Flowers, stuffed animals and photos line the street.

During the memorial Wednesday night, family and friends walked to the spot where Josue died and back to Holy Name Catholic Church.

At the church, a balloon release was held.

Later this month, Andre Jackson, the man charged with Josue's murder, will be back in court.
