UPDATE: Two More Men Charged For Murder Of Couple Found By 7-Year-Old

(Memphis) Three men are now behind bars in Memphis, charged with killing an Orange Mound couple more than two weeks ago.

James and Danielle Alexander were found shot to death, by one of their daughters who was 7-years-old at the time.

The little girl, who saw her parents after they were killed, had a birthday on Monday and learned whom police said pulled the trigger.

“Each day you process a little bit part of it differently,” Dejuana England said. “As a mother, I probably will always have moments when I cry because she’s my baby. I gave birth to her.”

England said after the tears, she is finally able to smile again now that police made an arrest.

Ricky Durham, known as PK on the streets, is charged two counts of first-degree murder in perpetration of a theft.

Two others, 18-year-old Kendrick Stark and 21-year-old Devin Gary, were also charged with two counts of first-degree murder in perpetration of a theft.

“From the looks of it, from what I can see, it looks like it,” England said.

Durham told police he was in the house and stole a TV.

However, he claims he is not responsible for killing the couple.

WREG obtained pictures from Durham’s Facebook page that show him toting gun after gun.

Durham also served time in jail for aggravated burglary two years ago.

“I think this time, it got that, maybe it got a little bit out of control,” England said.

Even if Durham is found guilty, England said she has already forgiven him.

“You might have wished that it were you, or you might have wished that it were someone else, but it wasn’t. It was your child,” England said. “You have to grieve, cry when you need to cry, but you got to keep on living. You got to keep on going.”

A fund has been set up for the children.

You can donate to the Alexander Children’s Benefit Fund at any SunTrust bank in Memphis.
