VIDEO: Family members describe Justin and Amber Hicks as childhood sweethearts who grew up down the street from each other. Last week the husband and wife were found after being killed inside the Acworth home they recently moved into. Their 2-year-old son was physically unharmed, according to police, and the suspect charged with murder for the couple's deaths has been in jail since this past weekend. During the couple's funeral service Tuesday, the focus shifted to making sure their son Jacob is taken care of. "Lord we pray for little Jacob as he grows up," said Rev. Dana McPherson, a Cherokee County Fire chaplain. "Let the families teach him about his mother and father the best way they can." Throughout the service, the Hicks were remembered and prayers were said for their 2-year-old.
