OAK CREEK - A family is grieving the loss of a mother after her son allegedly murdered her and brutally beat and stabbed his brother. 

Investigators also found the suspect’s brother beaten and stabbed and the mother fatally shot.

The victim's sisters were baffled to hear from investigators that their brother called 911 and said "there are bodies in the apartment" off Rawson Avenue and I-94.

Investigators told TODAY’S TMJ4 the suspect confessed to the brutal attack. He told detectives he was being "constantly nagged" by his mother and brother.

The mother was found shot to death and brother was found unconscious on the ground beaten and stabbed early Tuesday morning.

The brother is recovering at Froedtert Hospital with skull fractures.

His sisters have just one question to their brother being held responsible by police.

“I still love my brother, I just wanna be like, why would you kill mom?” said Keresha Pierce.

The victim’s daughter said their mother was 48-year-old Bonita Pierce. She was a mother of five and loved to cook. 

The brother injured was 24-year-old Kertwon Pierce. We are not naming the 25-year-old suspect until he is formally charged.
