Ride to Remember honors domestic violence victims

Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

More than 100 motorcycle riders on Saturday convoyed from Smyrna to Nashville for a good cause.

The Ride to Remember was held to honor two Rutherford County women whose lives were taken by domestic violence less than two months apart.

Carla Dillard Pearman, 30, was beaten and strangled to death on Valentine's Day earlier this year. Her husband, Jacob Pearman, is accused of killing the woman.  

Angie Ross Lambert, 40, was killed the day after Christmas 2012. Her then-boyfriend, Kerry Tomlin, is charged with the crime.

The 'Ride to Remember' was held to honor those two women and raise awareness about domestic violence.

Carla Dillard Pearman's brother, Brian Dillard, organized the event.

"It just shouldn't happen in the first place," Dillard said. "Women and children shouldn't go through this."

Money raised from the benefit ride will go to the domestic violence program in Murfreesboro to help women and children in need.
