A Des Moines playground could soon be named after a murdered metro woman.

Ashley Okland was found shot to death inside a West Des Moines town home in April of 2011.

Police have still not found her killer.

Okland volunteered and served as a Young Variety board member, an organization that helps children with special needs.

Variety will present its final plans to the Des Moines City Council Monday night.

The group hopes to rename a new playground at Ewing Park the ‘Ashley Okland Star Playground’.
