ST. JAMES PARISH, LA (WAFB) - The St. James Community has raised just over $15,000 in memory of Talaija Dorsey. Dorsey was laid to rest Saturday after her body was found in a cane field following a five-day search for the missing girl. Her mother's fiance has been charged with her murder.

Councilman Ken Brass says $8,000 was used to pay for a special vault, headstone, and flower vases; $2,000 for uniforms for Dorsey's brother and sisters; and $1,000 for school supplies.

Also, a scholarship fund has been set up for a graduating high school senior in Dorsey's name.
