After a horrific carjacking that killed three siblings in the Tioga section of the city last week, former Philadelphia 76er Charles Barkley has offered to pay for the funerals of the deceased children.
Siblings Keiearra Williams, 15; Thomas Reed, 10; and Terrence Moore, 7; were selling fruit on a street corner for a nearby church when the hijacked car struck them. The children's mother remains critically injured in the hospital.
According to District Attorney Seth Williams, the NBA star reached out to the family after the incident and offered to pay the full funeral expenses for the three siblings.
On Monday, suspects 22-year-old Cornelius Crawford and 19-year-old Jonathan Rosa were charged with multiple offenses, including second-degree murder, in the case.
