LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC-TV) – Funeral services were held on Saturday for two more victims from the quadruple homicide.

Kendrick Lavergne, 29, and Terry Banks, 19, were laid to rest after two separate services in Lake Charles.

Lavergne and Banks were killed along with Crystal Fruge and Jessica Eugene in Fruge's trailer home last Saturday, Sept. 4th.

The deaths sent shock waves across the area.

Family, friends and loved ones of Lavergne and Banks did not talk publicly about how they died; instead the focus of both services was on the lives each of them lived.

Lavergne loved life by all accounts. He especially loved the time he spent as part of the Washington Marion marching band and accepted Christ into his life at an early age. He was a member of Mill Street Church of Christ.

Banks also attended Washington Marion, graduating just last year. A member of the Starlight Baptist Church, Banks had a strong faith in God.

A memorial service was held on Thursday for Fruge. No word yet on services planned for Eugene.

Lee Roy Williams, 52, is being held as a material witness in the investigation. His bond has been set for $5 million.
