      Community runs memorial race for slain sisters

      A community came together Sunday morning to remember two sisters and an unborn baby murdered a year ago.

      A 5 K memorial race was held at Blissfield High School Sunday morning.

      S isters Amy Merrill and Lisa Gritzmaker were shot and killed by Merrill's ex-boyfriend Thomas Fritz. Gritzmaker was seven months pregnant when she died.

      F amily members say the race is one way of making sure their lost lives are not forgotten.

      M oney raised from t he race will go to Blissfield High School seniors, which is the school both women attended.
