"I'm not going to go without something being done," Armstrong-Justice said. 

Her son, Kendrick Armstrong, was found along with his friend, Sherri Turner Calderon. 

"He was going through so much that he didn't have lights where he was living," Armstrong-Justice said. "She was welcoming him to stay with her till he got himself situated." 

Christopher Keel, the homeowner, and his girlfriend, Trinity Hasting, are facing murder charges in the death of Armstrong and Calderon. At this time, the two await a trial.
