MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Over 100 people gathered in Milwaukee's City Hall Monday night, for a candlelight vigil on the first anniversary of the Brookfield spa murders. 

They remembered the three women shot and killed by Radcliffe Haughton before he killed himself at the Azana Salon and Spa.  hey also called for a renewed effort to stem domestic violence. 

Haughton targeted his estranged wife Zina, who was working at the spa at the time. She, Cary Robuck, and Maelyn Lind were murdered. Four other women were wounded before Haughton turned the gun on himself -- a gun he illegally obtained the day before the slayings, while he was under a restraining order to stay away from his wife. 

Earlier Monday, Zina Haughton's brother joined several anti-violence groups in urging Congress to approve criminal background checks for all gun sales.  

Elvin Daniel was among those calling on U.S. Senate Republican Ron Johnson to reverse his stand, and take their side. 

Johnson helped the Senate kill a measure in April to require more background checks.
