Two victims of Pelham triple homicide laid to rest

Posted: Updated:

Two victims of a Sunday triple homicide in Pelham were laid to rest Thursday. Family and friends said goodbye to 22-year-old Casey Cumberland in Calera and 22-year-old Joshua Smith in Clanton. 

"Casey wouldn't have wanted people to cry right now. Josh wouldn't have, either," said friend Andrew Eberhardt.  "He'd want everybody to be happy and have a big smile on their face."

20-year-old Jon Staggs is charged with murder and burglary in connection with the case.

He's accused of killing Cumberland, Smith, and 19-year-old Simeon Gilmore.

The victims' bodies were found Sunday inside the house where Smith and his parents lived in Pelham's Chandalar neighborhood.
