“He took something so precious from our family and we’re never going to be the same,” Marcus Mason said, referring to the suspect, 19-year-old Malik Murphy.

Mason says Murphy was a good kid prior to this and had no previous history of violence.

Murphy is charged with stabbing his 7-year-old brother and 5-year-old sister to death. He allegedly told investigators he wanted to kill his entire family so he could have the home to himself.

“We love Malik. … We absoutely hate what he did and he made the decision that night. When he did that, he decided he didn’t want to be a family member of ours anymore,” said Mason.

“He didn’t want to be with his family and if he would have carried out his plan he would have went through all of them.”
