Calling hours, funeral services for cousins killed on Chili Avenue

Created: 03/06/2014 7:19 AM WHEC.com

Family and friends will come together today to mourn two cousins who were shot and killed in a triple homicide last week.

Today calling hours and funeral services will be held for Jacquelyn and Jermeliah Simmons.

The two women, along with Michael Nelson, were found dead in an apartment on Chili Avenue last week.

Calling hours for the Simmons' are from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. at Mount Olivet Baptist Church on Adams Street. The funeral service will begin immediately after.

Right now, Rochester Police have charged six people in connection with those deaths. They are not charged with murder. They are facing drug and weapons charges after a raid on an apartment on Clifford Avenue last Friday.

One of the suspects, Carlos White, is due in court Thursday for a preliminary hearing.
