Reality star Toya Wright’s family is finally getting some answers in regards to the heartbreaking and unexpected death of two of her brothers just last year.

According to the Time Picayune, Antoine Edwards, 31, was booked on March 9th with two counts of second-degree murder, which were both in connection to the deaths of Wright’s brothers, Joshua, 31, and Rudy, 34, according to court records.

The men were allegedly seated in a vehicle at around midnight on the night of the killing, which was when a neighbor of the area claimed to have heard gunshots.

NOPD homicide detective Theo Kent says that there were multiple tips called in and that is what led them to Edwards, who was also known as “Tweezy.”

“It was the worst news ever,” Toya told 
PEOPLE about the loss. “Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.”

“I’m praying day and night because it hurts. I really understand what it means to have a hole in your heart.”

We are happy to hear this good news and are also hopeful that something will be done so that the family of Rudy and Joshua can receive justice.
