Funeral for murdered little girl, dad



The funeral is today for a murdered little girl and her Northshore father.

Two-year-old Makayla Christine Middleton (above) and 35-year-old Jacob Eli Middleton Sr. are being laid to rest.  Both were shot in the head and killed a week ago at a home in the Covington area.

Their obituary says, "Relatives and friends of the family are invited to attend the Funeral Service in the chapel of MOTHE FUNERAL HOME, 2100 Westbank Expy., Harvey, LA on Monday, January 13, 2014 at 11 AM."

Jacob Middleton Jr. is in jail charged with killing his father and half sister.

"Middleton admitted to shooting his father and his half-sister.  He indicated that his actions were the result of, among other things, his hatred of his father for what he claimed was years of abuse and family violence," Capt. George Bonnett said in a news release.

Family members say they are not aware of the alleged abuse.
