Seton Hall holds prayer service for slain student

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Seton Hall University will hold a prayer service Wednesday for a student slain at an off-campus party last month and two other students who were injured.

Jessica A. Moore, an honors student from Disputanta, Va., was shot and killed at the Sept. 25 party less than a mile from the university campus.

Four others were also injured, including Seton Hall students Nakeisha Vanterpool and Nicosia Henry. Henry is from Bolingbrook, Ill., and is a freshman forward the women's basketball team.

The university says Vanterpool and Henry have since returned to campus.

Two East Orange men who lived near the house where the party was held have been arrested in connection with the shooting.

The service will be held at 4 p.m. in Walsh Gymnasium.
