Some people wore white T-shirts emblazoned with his photo. Slideshows of the smiling boy were displayed above the church’s main stage.

On Thursday, police charged a recently released convict with murder and other crimes in the Sunday death of P.J. and wounding of 7-year-old Mikayla Capers.

Police say Daniel St. Hubert is also suspected of stabbing a homeless man on a Manhattan subway platform and the fatal stabbing of an 18-year-old woman. He is not charged in those crimes.

St. Hubert is expected to get a lawyer on Friday.
