The King Brothers, Alex King and Derek King, who were convicted as adults for the brutal murder of their father, Terry King, with a baseball bat during his sleep then setting their home on fire in an effort to conceal their crime at the tender age of 12 and 13 years old, have been released from jail after nearly a decade.
Alex King was released on Wednesday morning, April 9, 2008 at 9:45 a.m. after serving six years for his part in his father’s death, while Derek King was released in March, 2009 after serving seven years for his part in his father’s death. Alex and Derek finally spoke for the first time to Matt Lauer on The Today Show about their life before and after prison.
The brothers defused to talk about the motive of the murder, which is still unclear, and their neighbor, convicted sex offender Ricky Chavis’ involvement in the crime. Ricky was convicted of being an accessory after the fact.
