A fund has been started for the family of Hector Hernandez-Valdez, a 15-year-old Tacoma boy who was fatally stabbed last week.

Donations can be made to the “Memorial Fund: Hector Hernandez-Valdez” at any Bank of America branch.

Hector was killed Friday afternoon at a home in the 800 block of East 52nd Street.

Brothers Luis Alberto Arroyo, 16, and Cristobal Ivan Arroyo, 14, have been charged with first-degree murder. Pierce County prosecutors have also charged the elder Arroyo with one count of first-degree robbery.
