WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The sexual assault and fatal burning of a woman near Wichita State University has contributed to the formation of a neighborhood task force.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1yuPZgb ) university President John Bardo announced the formation of the “Enough is Enough” task force on Thursday. He appointed Vice President Ted Aryes to lead the initiative, which will address safety issues in neighborhoods surrounding campus.

Thirty-six-year-old Letitia “Tish” Davis died Nov. 22 after suffering burns on more than half her body and cuts on her head. Twenty-six-year-old Cornell McNeal has been charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 14 attack.

The university has increased patrols on university property near the park where Davis was attacked.
