The Fife Police Department and Pierce County DUI Victim Impact Panel will dedicate a sign today to a 3-month-old baby boy killed by a drunken driver in 2010.

The dedication will start at 1 p.m. at the corner of 20th Street East and 70th Avenue East.

Jayden Thomas Wayman died two days after he was critically injured in a crash Jan. 24, 2010.

Prosecutors alleged Matthew Ryan Hamilton ran a red light at the intersection of 20th Street East and 70th Avenue East in Fife. He hit a car carrying Jayden.

Hamilton was convicted of vehicular homicide last year and was sentenced to more than nine years in prison.
