CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – Tomorrow a memorial service will be held for the Texas teacher who was murdered in New Mexico.
Friends and family are holding a service for Emily Lambert in Hurst, Texas.
They’re asking people to wear green, Lambert’s favorite color.
The 30-year-old teacher and mother of two was in Carlsbad last weekend visiting her boyfriend Robert Earley when she went missing.
Earley later admitted to police they got into a fight after drinking he punched and knocked her out.
And when Lambert woke up and tried to fight him he hit her with an air pump and used a rope to drag her body behind a barn in a deserted area near loving.
Earley is now being held on a $1 million bond.
