Man in Wheelchair Charged with Killing Family Members!

No one suspects a beloved grandmother would lose her life to the hands of her grandson, that a son would kill his mother or that a brother would kill his sister. No one likes to believe that these atrocities can be true but, for one Jackson, Mississippi family it's a horrible reality.

A 22-year-old, wheelchair bound, man has been charged with murdering the women in his family.

According to Fox8Live:

"Officers were originally called to a residence in the 3000 block of Marwood Drive, regarding someone being “held against their will.

“When they arrived on scene, they found a man in a wheelchair just outside the home, and a firearm was near him.

The suspect, who has been identified as 22-year-old Maurice Forte, told officers that he had shot someone.

When officers walked to the rear of the home they found three women, all suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Each was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victims have been identified as Forte’s grandmother, 67-year-old Eddie Mae Wofford, his mother, 49-year-old Miyuki Wofford and sister, 26-year-old Kyisha Wofford."

The three women were pronounced dead at the scene. The police are not releasing a motive at this time. Forte is being held without bond.
