A 16-year-old boy is accused of killing his mother
and two younger brothers with a knife — then leaving the house to go to
school, according to reports.
The bodies of 36-year-old Holli Durham and 13-year-old twins Branson and Baron
Durham were found late Tuesday in Munford, Ala., according to reports.
Durham was driving in a car Wednesday morning when he was arrested and
charged as an adult with capital murder. He was due in court Friday.
“I don’t have any motive I can talk about at this time,” Talladega County District Attorney Steve Giddens said, according to Fox 6 Birmingham.
Branson, his brother and their mother were believed stabbed to death around 3 a.m. Tuesday, Al.com reported.
Giddens said he was told the suspect then attended classes later that day at Munford High School.
The bodies were found by two family members who had been trying to reach the victims all day Tuesday, Al.com reported.
A prayer vigil was held for the victims at a Munford church Thursday evening.
“All we need right now is everybody to pray,” Jennifer Harrison a relative of the victims said at the vigil, Fox 6 reported.
“Pray that we can find the strength. Pray that my niece and my nephews
are in a better place and pray for Landon that he finds his way.”
