CITRONELLE, Ala. (AP) — Funerals are beginning for the five people killed in a weekend massacre in southwest Alabama.
A service is scheduled Friday morning in Citronelle for Shannon Randall and husband Joseph Adam Turner, plus Randall's brother, Robert Lee Brown.
Services will be held Saturday for Justin and Chelsea Reed, who were married. Reed's unborn child also died when she was killed.
The five were found dead in a rural home in Citronelle on Saturday. Authorities have charged 27-year-old Derrick Dearman of Leakesville, Mississippi, in the killings.
Police say Dearman's estranged girlfriend had sought refuge from abuse at the home where the slayings occurred. They say Dearman kidnapped her after killing the five.
Dearman has told reporters he was high on drugs at the time of the attack.
