Service held for murdered school worker

A special ceremony honored a custodian shot and killed in Lexington school one year ago.

Friends and co-workers honored Daniel Donato Wednesday morning at Leestown's Middle School.

Police say a co-worker, Brian McGuire, shot Donato several times while Donato was working at the school on June 9, 2009. McGuire fled to Missouri and was arrested a few days later.

Wednesday's ceremony focused on the goodness of Donato and not the tragedy that took his life.

Those who participated in the event had a chance to sign a registry that will be presented to Donato's family as a reminder of how many lives he touched at Leestown Middle and in the Lexington community.
