A store manager murdered during an armed robbery in west suburban Hanover Park was remembered by loved ones Tuesday night at the Evangel Assembly of God Church. They were praying for Vatisla Thakkar, a 56-year old woman who was killed last Thursday in a Dollar Plus store parking lot.

Two teenagers and a man are charged with her murder. Police say they stabbed Thakkar to death to get $135 in cash.

The slain woman leaves behind a husband, two children and a grandchild.
