    GA - Ervin brothers attempt to murder parents for $$, Atlanta

    http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/06/us/ga-...nts/index.html

    "Two Atlanta-area brothers are behind bars and charged with multiple felonies after police said they attempted to kill their own parents over the weekend.

    Yvonne Ervin called 911 Saturday morning and reported that she and husband Zachary were being attacked in their own home."

    Dad kept boys distracted so mom was able to call 911 which likely saved their lives.

    Parents are expected to recover, but allegedly the intent of the boys was to kill parents and burn the home.

    "The Ervin family appeared to be a happy family for the four years Clint Miller lived next door to them in Gwinnett County.

    "You would never even expect that," Miller said. "They're just an every day normal family in the neighborhood.""

    I can't even imagine how devastating that must be, to see your grown kids trying to KILL YOU.

    Beautiful family from all of the photos in the news video piece, and beautiful home in an upscale community. How does this happen?

    Hardly know what to say.... Just pure evil.
    If they were somehow being mistreated,neglected, abused or whatever, the 22 year old could have moved out. And the 17 yr.old could've requested to be placed in foster care.

    Maybe the motive was greed ? They didn't want to wait until their parents passed away , to collect their inheritance ? Well if I were either parent-- I'd make a new will asap and leave the both of them the heck out .

    The saddest part of this is that since both parents survived (don't get me wrong--I'm grateful they did), these boys will most likely get out of prison at some time. My opinion, but I'd be afraid of them for the rest of my life. How does a person forgive and forget something like this ?

    This tragic case brings back memories of the Menendez brothers.

    I wonder if something had taken place to make the brothers desperate for money, such as a substance addiction?

    Although in recent cases of parent killings we've seen, grudges and resentment or jealousy seem to be recurring motives.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    The 911 call is chilling. And I think I heard, after she said that her sons were coming upstairs having realized their mom was missing, one of her sons saying coldly, "Let's go.", ostensibly to his mother. Like he was trying to get her to cooperate in her own murder.

    Just horrible. What creepy young men. It certainly does echo the Menendez brothers for me but these two seems even sweeter looking and even more normal.

    I dont get it.

    I have no idea. I wonder what will come out.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!

    OMG that 911 call...when they found her. How awful. I'm glad she's okay physically and he's recovering. I don't know how many happy memories I'd be able to think about in that house, however. Awful children.

    I don't know why kids are so evil now to where their parents are disposable like this.

    Standing next to his wife, who still had bruises on her face from the attack, Zachary said: 'We forgive our sons and we love them unconditionally.

    Seeing those bruises on the mom's face... smdh !

    Reports say one of the sons has been fantasizing about doing this since he was 11- for insurance money.
    They drugged them and were planning on setting it all on fire.

    One bad moment? I'd say it's a tad bit more than that.

    Those poor people... I can't imagine... those are their babies...

    I dunno. Maybe in their situation I might forgive my boys too.... but I'd sure as heck change the locks, first!
