COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio’s attorney general has approved $22,500 to help pay for the funerals of three siblings who were among eight family members slain earlier this year.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Saturday the Ohio Victims of Crime Compensation Program approved the maximum of $7,500 each for funeral costs for 20-year-old Clarence “Frankie” Rhoden, 19-year-old Hanna Rhoden and 16-year-old Christopher Rhoden Jr.

The Attorney General’s Office fund already paid $7,328 to help cover the costs of a separate funeral for 20-year-old Hannah Gilley, Frankie Rhoden’s fiancée, who also died in the shootings.

The Dayton Daily News reports that costs of the investigation continue to rise, with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office spending more than $130,000 just to break down, move and store evidence.

The April 22 killings in southern Ohio remain unsolved.
