THE BRONX - Loved ones gathered for a candlelight vigil to mourn a mother and daughter who were murdered in their Bronx home last week.

Jana Randolph and her 55-year-old mother Ida Randolph were remembered outside the Performance Conservatory High School Sunday night, where the 21-year-old victim had once been a student.

Police say they have made three arrests in the double homicide, including Jana Randolph's ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Andrew Scott. His alleged accomplices, 26-year-old Joshua Lopez and 23-year-old Brittney Austin, are also in custody.

All three suspects are charged with two counts of murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, and are being held without bail.

Those who attended the vigil say both women were always welcoming and full of laughter.
