Funeral Services Held for Carroll Jordan

Posted: Updated:
EAST BREWTON, Alabama - A Chickasaw man who was beaten and stabbed to death  in his own home was laid to rest Thursday.

Carroll Jordan died Saturday after the attack in his home January 27.

“I believe a lot of people are still angry, not only us but the people that have been seeing it on the news and on the internet too, I believe people were outraged at the way it was done and the things that happened,” said Jordan’s nephew Donald Johnson.

Friends and family attended his funeral and some who didn't personally know Jordan personally.

“I just wonder what happened to people,” said Carol Ellington. “Somewhere along the line we failed.”

three people have been charged in his murder, 21-year-old DeAngelo Terrell Smith, 19-year-old Yasmine Munnerlyn and 20-year-old Carlos Nottingham. Police say say the crime was motivated by robbery.

If convicted they could face the death penalty.

“I feel sorry for them that they had to stoop so low to do something like this to get a few dollars and they should have went out there and got a job,” said Johnson.

Carroll Jordan was 86 years old.
