WESTMINSTER, Colo. -

 A year after a 10-year-old Westminster girl was abducted on her way to school and killed, a park where she used to play has been formally dedicated to her memory.
    
A ceremony was held Saturday at the newly named Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park.
    
The remodeled park near Jessica's home includes slides and a swing set in her favorite color, purple.
    
Earlier this week, the teen accused of killing her, 18-year-old Austin Sigg, pleaded guilty to all counts against him just before he was to go on trial. He'll be sentenced in November.
