A vigil will be held in Eden tonight, following the death of 15-year-old Noongar boy Cassius Turvey in Western Australia on October 23.

The 15-year-old was walking home from school with friends when he was allegedly attacked with a metal pole by a 21-year-old Perth man.

The man has been charged with murder and will appear in court later this month.
