Eight Mile, AL: Children Witness Murder-Suicide

EIGHT MILE, Alabama --
Prichard police are investigating a murder-suicide involving a father of two young children. What's worse, the children saw it happen.

Ronald Coleman, Jr. and Charmeall Powe, 39 years of age, were found dead about 8:00 this morning at 304 Sasser Drive in Eight Mile. The disocvery was made after the 6 and 7 year old went to a neighbor's house because they did not want to miss school.

Police have not said who killed who, but we know both Coleman and Powe were stabbed to death.

Chief Jimmie Gardner says the children witnessed the murder-suicide sometime overnight, went to bed and got up this morning to go to school.

The children are now with their mother.

Coleman was a member of the Mobile Area Mardi Gras Association. His dad, Ronald Coleman Sr. is a former MAMGA president.
