HIGH POINT, N.C. - The man accused of killing his estranged wife and pregnant daughter will not face an additional charge for the death of his unborn grandchild.
Andrew Allen Jr. is accused of killing Vickie and Andrea Allen. Andrea was pregnant at the time. Officials say he faces two murder charges, and an attempted murder charge. The District Attorney's Office says he could face the death penalty.
A week later, the family they left behind is struggling to put their emotions into words as they prepare to bury a mother and daughter.
“Right now, tomorrow's going to be the roughest…because I haven't got to see her at all from the last time she was alive,” said Andrea’s longtime boyfriend Brandon Kearns.
They never imagined they would be here.
“I just wish everything was different,” said Vickie’s daughter, and Andrea’s older sister Stephanie Allen.
Kearns said they were inseparable, and he was planning to propose to Andrea. Stephanie was her only sister.
“We always would ride around and hang out – it was just me and her all the time,” she said.
Kearns doesn't know what to tell his two daughters about their mother, or their grandma. And Stephanie is now leaning on those outside of her immediate family after last week's deadly scene at the Bizzy Bee gas station.
“I still have mixed emotions about it…because my dad's the one that did it,” she said.
For all the tragedy that has surrounded this family, they're still trying to be strong, and honor the memories of two irreplaceable people.
“Moving forward I always want to keep her memories and thoughts, for me and my kids, so they always know what their mother was like because they're never going to get to know their mom the way they should,” Kearns said.
The viewing will be held from 6-9 p.m. at the Davis Funeral Home in High Point on Thursday. The funeral will be held Friday at 2 p.m. The family still says they are accepting donations to pay for the services and burials.
