DUPO, IL (KPLR) - Saturday mourners gathered along the streets of Dupo Illinois to remember the life of 4-year-old Emily Rose Perrin. She was a day away from her 5th birthday when she died. Her mother 37-year-old Mary Lockett is accused of killing Emily by suffocation last Sunday at their home in the 100 block of Ninth Street. Friends and family say they`re devastated.
St. Clair county prosecutors have since filed first degree murder charges against Lockett who family members say was on medication for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
