MONTGOMERY COUNTY, N.C. (WTVD) -- There is a new call for justice from the family of a murdered Moore County woman.
"She's not quite really at peace just yet. She will be at peace when justice is served," friend Tea Hines said.
A vigil for Allisha Watts was held in front of the Montgomery County courthouse Tuesday.
Family and friends said they were concerned that investigators and prosecutors haven't informed them of any new information in the case.
Watts' boyfriend, James Dunmore, is accused of killing her last July while she was visiting him in Charlotte.
Her body was found a month later at a cemetery in Montgomery County.
Officials have not yet released Watts' official cause of death.
Dunmore is behind bars on a $1 million bond, but the Watts' family said they wish he didn't have a bond at all, and they wish the case would move along faster.
"Our patience is not that long. Even if the process is not completed soon, the evidence needs to be there. We need to be assured that this person will be punished to the greatest extent of the law," Watts' mentor, Dorothy Brower, said.
The family ultimately wants to know everything that lead up to Allisha's death.
Brower said the family is hoping to learn more about where the case stands during Dunmore's next court appearance, which is scheduled for Jan. 29.
Watts' family and friends also hope this case can shine a spotlight on other potential cases of domestic violence.
"Domestic violence is real, you know, and what happened to her was due to domestic violence. So let's put that out there in the public, let's keep it alive, let's keep it in the media as much as possible because there's women now that didn't really meet the demise that she did but they're in their homes suffering now," Nora Bowman said.
