ELKHART, Ind. -- Dozens of people packed the stands at the OCWA Wrestling Arena to support a family still grieving.
It's been just over two weeks since the gruesome murder of Martha Sexton. She was stabbed by her brother, Ed Hensley after they got into an argument.
We first broke this story for you the night it happened.
And, Saturday night the family was fully supported by their community as OCWA Outlaw Wrestling held a benefit in Martha's honor.
Admission was $5.00 plus any donation you could give.
"I think this is amazing. Like, you know, you don't ever think about this stuff but then when it does happen, you know, it touches you so much to see your community and your family and your friends come together to help you out when you're in a time of need," said Tara Sexton and Gilbert Griffin, the victim's daughter and nephew.
A security guard for the wrestling promotion was Martha Sexton's nephew. That is how the OCWA was able to put on this event.
