Their 19-year-old brother, Malik Murphy, is accused of stabbing them and wounding his father in their home on Tuesday. The father survived.

Investigators say Murphy told them he carried out the attack so he could be alone in the house. He allegedly bought a knife several months ago with the plan of killing his entire family and burying the bodies in the backyard.
