April Millsap Memorial Garden will open today in Macomb County

ARMADA, Mich. (WXYZ) - The April Millsap Memorial Garden will open today in Macomb County. 

April's family wants the memorial garden to be a place of remembrance, and a place where the community can gather. 

The 14-year-old's body was discovered along the Macomb Orchard Trail in the Village of Armada last July.

James VanCallis Jr., 33, has been charged with the teen's murder. 

The garden is located adjacent to the Armada Grain Company at the intersection of Fulton and Depot Streets at 73180 Fulton Street.

A group of volunteers have been working with the Office of the County Executive to develop the memorial garden.

The garden will open at 6:00 p.m. tonight.
