Alexis Murphy's Family Seeks Justice

April 30, 2014

The family of Alexis Murphy is speaking out, days before the man charged with the 17-year-old's disappearance and murder goes on trial in Nelson County.

It's been 9 months since Alexis was last seen at a gas station in Lovingston.

Randy Allen Taylor, 48, is charged with first-degree murder and abduction with intent to defile. He has maintained his innocence.

Murphy's body has not been found, and her aunt, Trina Murphy, says enduring this trial will be tough on the whole family.

"We're just reigning in the circle, pulling the family circle tighter and supporting each other, when one of us is strong the other one is weak and vice versa so we're just trying to maintain until we get through this."

Trina Murphy says several family members, including Alexis' mother have been called as witnesses.
