Two Montgomery families are trying to recover from a double homicide where a mother and her 2 children were attacked. The mother and one child died from multiple stab wounds, and another child ran to get help. Police arrested 24 year old Gregory Love. He's charged with 2 counts of capital murder and 1 count of attempted murder.....
The crime scene tapes are down but some neighbors are still worried about their own safety... So worried that they don't want to go on camera. A neighbor tells us, "I'm scared myself now, i won't lie. I lock my door.
Much of the neighborhood seems to be returning to normal. But the thoughts are still with the family.... The grandmother admitted to the hospital with heart problems... Family afraid how she will react.
Kirby Brown is the step brother of Munick James, mother to the two children. He says, of his step sister's mother, They're keeping her kind of sedated, medicine wise, but she's taking it good right now, but I think it hasn't hit her."
And the concern for 9 year old Nakia who ran for help for her mother and brother Gary Junior.
Brown says, "Whatever she saw, she's going to need a lot of help, but we're going to be there for her."
There's also concern to try to give Nakia a decent Christmas, despite what she's been through. And there are worries about paying for 2 funerals.
Miriam Shehane is the executive director of Victims of Crime and Leniency. She says, "Crime Victims Compensation's max for funeral expenses $5-thousand dollars, so if it were to go over 5-thousand dollars then that could be used."
"That" is the establishement of a couple of funds ... One to pay for the funeral expenses of James and her son and another to help Nakia with Christmas. Both could be administered by VOCAL. Shehane says, "We have a licensed counselor."
She says vocal will be there with whatever is needed.
If you would like to help make that check payable to vocal and specify the Munick James and Gary Tucker Junior funeral or the Nakia Tucker Christmas fund. The address is P.O. Box 4449....Montgomery, Alabama 36103.
