HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A mother, a daughter, and an unborn fetus were killed in a vicious attack in Hattiesburg Monday morning.

The autopsy results have been released in the deaths of Alesia Twillie, 49, Anjelica Twillie, 26, and Anjelica's unborn child.

Coroner Butch Benedict said the two women died of multiple gunshot wounds and multiple stab wounds.

In addition, an 8-month-old fetus already named Markel Twillie died as a result of utero-placental insufficiency due to the homicidal death of the mother.

Gregory Mootye was arrested Thursday around 2 a.m. and charged with two counts of homicide in connection with the murders.
