FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The family of a murdered Fargo toddler says they are planning a memorial this weekend to honor her birthday.

15-month-old Meka was pronounced dead in late November 2020 after spending four days on life support.

37-year-old Brandi Adeleke is charged with one count of murder and one count of felony child abuse and is being held on $1 million bond.

Aug. 1 will mark what would have been Meka’s 2nd birthday. Her family tells Valley News Live a memorial will be held in her honor at Gooseberry Park in Moorhead from 1-3 p.m.

Meka’s family says they will be letting go of lanterns for Meka, as well as sell ‘Justice for Meka’ t-shirts. They say all donations and proceeds will be put toward a tree the family can plant at the park with a plaque to honor and remember her with.

The family says the memorial is open to the public and invite those to the park to help remember a young girl taken far too soon.
