ARKADELPHIA, AR-- A graveside service is held Friday in Arkadelphia for two murdered girls, Adiele and Marley Crutchfield. They shared the same pink casket.

"They were always smiling. I've never seen them on a bad day," said family friend Kimberly Mitchell.

Clark County deputies found the two murdered at their home December 6.

19-year-old Riakos Lizana is charged with killing them and their stepfather, 49-year-old Bobby Galbraith.

Family friends are now supporting a grieving wife and mother.

"I told her as I was leaving if she needs anything, we can just talk, that I would be there for her. She lost two children and her husband all at the same time," said family supporter Tavonda Williams.

The two little girls went to Perritt Elementary School. Adiele was a first grader. Marley was in pre-k.

"Their smiles are replaying in my head constantly," said Mitchell.

Some of the investigators working on the case were also at the service.

A service for Bobby Galbraith will be held 10 o'clock Saturday morning at Jones Fine Arts Center on Ouachita Baptist University campus.
