Autumn Pasquale, the 12-year-old girl whose disappearance and slaying rocked the Gloucester County borough of Clayton last month, was a bicycle motocross enthusiast.

Now the county plans to name a bike trail in her hometown after her.

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said Thursday that a resolution to memorialize a new three-mile section of the county's bike trail after Autumn will be on the freeholders' agenda next week.

Autumn's family "is very grateful that this bicycle trail will named after her," said Jaime Kaigh, a lawyer who is serving as spokesman for the girl's parents.

Damminger's announcement came the day before the two brothers charged with murdering Autumn - Justin, 15, and Dante Robinson, 17 - were scheduled to appear in court in Woodbury for a detention hearing.

"The tragic event that took place in Clayton affected so many people," Damminger said in a statement.
