View Comments ()



    On Saturday, Goosetown Park in Bridgeport will be rededicated in honor of Tim and Kim Donnelly, two owners of a Fairfield jewelry store who were killed in 2005.

    Tim and Kim were high school sweethearts who were popular in their Fairfield community, the Connecticut Post reported in 2011

    The crime shocked a community and the stone to be placed at the park, located on Wood Avenue near Wade Street, will honor not only the Donnellys, but all victims of violence as well.

    The stone will replace a handmade wooden sign that was ruined by storms and funds for it  will be raised by the annual Donnelly Dash road race.

    The rededication will happen at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

    Christopher DiMeo, of Queens, N.Y, has been convicted of the slaying . He was sentenced on to life in prison without the possibility of release.
