VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Oct. 24, 2017 marks the one year anniversary of the murder of Matt Luecking.

Luecking was a popular radio personality here in Terre Haute who was found dead in his Village Quarter Apartment.

On Tuesday, in honor of Luecking, family, friends and volunteers spent their day helping kids. This included Matt's brother, Eric who read and helped out in a first grade classroom at Terre Towne Elementary School.

Eric told us today has been a tough day for everyone who was close to Matt. But this is one way they can honor him and do something for which he would be proud.

"I remember seeing a picture of him on Facebook and he went to a school for career day, and he kind of talked about what he did. So I thought this was a good way to honor him by circling back around," Eric Luecking explained.

Matt Luecking day was part of character week at Terre Towne Elementary School.

Now, with where the murder trials stand - three people are accused of killing Matt Luecking.

John Collins, Kathleen Featherstone and Donald Featherstone each face charges in-connection to the murder of Luecking.

John Collins has a new trial date set for March 5. Kathleen Featherstone is set for Nov. 13 and

Donald Featherstone is set for trial March 12.

Collins along with Kathleen and Donald Featherstone are accused of breaking into Luecking's apartment last October and killing him in his sleep.

All are in jail with no bond.
