MUNFORD, Ala. (WBRC) - A first court appearance Friday afternoon for the 16-year-old who is charged as an adult in the deaths of his mother and his twin brothers.

Landon Durham is accused of stabbing them to death in Talladega County. He is charged with capital murder.

Durham has a preliminary hearing on Feb. 28, and he is being held on no bond. He has a public attorney.

The Talladega County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims as 36-year-old Holli Christina Durham, 13-year-old Branson Durham and 13-year-old Baron Durham.

Authorities say they were stabbed to death at a home on Roy Lackey Lane in Munford. Their bodies were discovered Tuesday night. It is unclear when they were stabbed.
