Family of Murder Victim Seeks Donations for Funeral

The family of a woman murdered earlier this week is seeking help in covering her funeral costs.  25-year-old Alexius Spencer and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Jerece Teasley, were shot to death Monday afternoon at a home on Redwine Church Road in Hart County.  A suspect is in custody and faces several charges including two counts of Felony Murder.

Annette Bryant is Spencer’s aunt.  She says Alex, as she was called, was very sweet and hardworking person.

“She was a great mother.  She was a very sweet, kind person.  Everybody loved her, and so it’s just hard to believe that her boys don’t have her anymore.  It’s just so sad.”

Alex was a 2015 graduate of Franklin County High School and worked in South Carolina.  She leaves behind two small children.  Bryant says shortly after getting over the initial shock of learning about Alex’s death, the family found out they would not be able access her life insurance money right away.  So Bryant has set up a Go Fund Me Page to raise money to cover the funeral costs.  You can go to and type in Alexius Spencer’s name.  That’s spelled A-l-e-x-i-u-s S-p-e-n-c-e-r.  You can also call Bryant at 7-0-6-4-9-1-40-60 to make a donation.  Bryant says the goal is $10,000.  Any additional funds raised will go to the care of Alex’s boys.
