Toya Wright and her family are getting some answers regarding the heartbreaking loss of her two brothers last year. 

A suspect has been caught and charged with the murder of the reality star’s two brothers, who were killed in July 2016. 

According to The Times Picayune, Antoine Edwards, 31, was booked March 9 with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the deaths of brothers, Joshua, 31, and Ryan “Rudy” Johnson, 34, court records show.

The men were seated in a vehicle around midnight when they were shot and killed.

NOPD homicide detective Theo Kent says the multiple tips he received from neighbors is what led them to Edwards, who was also known under the alias of “Toine” or “Tweezy.”

“It was the worst news ever,” Toya told PEOPLE about the loss. “Murders happen every day and this is another dark night in New Orleans. You hear about stories like this all the time, but it doesn’t really hit you until you get that call. It hits so close to home.”

“I’m praying day and night because it hurts. I really understand what it means to have a hole in your heart.”
