(WBNG Binghamton) Melissa A. Keefe, daughter of Carol and David Keeffe, releases a statement on the recent arrest in the case of her parents' murders.

(The following is a statement from Melissa Keeffe)

"As a criminal defense attorney, my father was a part of the criminal justice system for thirty years.

My father was a true believer in our criminal justice system and he was dedicated to his job.

Now that an arrest has been made in my parents' murders, their case has to make its way through this justice system and that is going to take time.

The only thing we can do at this point is to step back and let those that work in the justice system do their jobs.

I am so grateful for the support my family and I have received for the community these past four years and I ask on behalf of my family and myself for some space at this time as we deal with these recent events."
