BETHLEHEM, N.H. (AP) - A new arts center planned for the White Mountain School in Bethlehem, N.H., will be named after Catherine "Kitty" Houghton, a school trustee who was killed last week in Littleton.

Houghton, a 1960 graduate of the school, was in town last week meeting with the board of trustees.

She was fatally stabbed in the lobby of a Hampton Inn on Jan. 28. Prosecutors called it a random act of violence. Rodney Hill of West Danville, Vt., is charged with two counts of second-degree murder.

Rob Constantine, the school's director of advancement, tells The Caledonian-Record Houghton was an advocate for the arts center. She was a big supporter of the music program.

Construction is expected to start in the spring, with an opening date of January 2014.
