(WMC-TV) - A mother who has buried two sons, the second just murdered three months ago, learned from police that someone is in jail for the crime.

It was on May 8, 2013, on East McLemore Avenue, when police say two men tried to rob Marcus and shot him on his own front lawn.

Vicki Tunstall found her son lying on the side of the house.

"And I said, 'Marcus, Marcus, baby, you OK?' And he said, 'No, momma. I even shot, call an ambulance.'"

His aunt, Deloris Wright, a retired trauma nurse at The MED, tried her best to save him.

"I said, 'Well, don't try to talk, just keep your eye on me and keep breathing.'"

But Marcus did not make it.

"They loved him. Everybody. They still miss him, too. I miss him, miss the most though," said Tunstall.

On Wednesday, investigators locked up Paris McGhee, who is accused of killing Marcus Mosby.

"I'm happy they got him though... I'm just happy that's all. And he can rest in peace now," said Tunstall. "I know he's smiling now."

Tunstall, who also lost her eldest son when he was hit by a train, says she is preparing to pack up and move away.

"Too many memories. Too many bullet holes and too many memories," she said.

Leaving behind broken glass, but not her broken heart.

McGhee is being held without bond.

Court records indicate a judge has ordered a mental evaluation. He is due back in court in a month.
