The funeral for two siblings, shot and killed on Parsons Avenue, was held Tuesday.

“He was young and sweet and he was a cutie pie,” shared one of the victim’s friends Dorothy Minniefield.

While another friend who attended school with Jenea Logan said, “She was a beautiful person, loved by many.” 

Memories are the lasting legacy that  Logan and her brother Donnell McDonald Junior have left behind.

Friends who gathered at New Birth Christian Ministries for the siblings’ funeral Tuesday afternoon say Logan was a young entrepreneur who had a passion for children.

“She went in the inner cities and she saw the kids, she went in the homes,” Minniefield said.

Hours before the joint funeral Jenea’s estranged husband Roy Harvison stood before a judge in court facing charges for allegedly killing his wife and her brother.

Harvison passed on bond and a judge barred him from communicating with the victim’s immediate family.

“I’ve been praying for them and you know, ask that everyone else continue to pray for this family during their time of grief,” shared another friend of the family Jhane Selph.

A family torn apart by an unspeakable act of violence, but trying to somehow to hold each other up during their darkest days.

“Everybody start to pull together, you never know when we [are] going lose one another,” Minniefield said.

Harvison has a preliminary court hearing scheduled next week where the county prosecutor will share if they plan to try Harvison for capital murder. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
