It was a tragedy that struck just last month. 23 year old Carvy Evans was found stabbed to death in her Houston apartment. Police arrested her boyfriend Christopher Eugene Johnson. Left behind was the couple’s 3 month old daughter Kiara. Now Evan’s older brother Charnell says he’s stepping up to the plate. He is now in the process of adopting his sister’s daughter. He says it’s what his sister wants. This comes in the same two months that Charnell and Carvy’s father died from an illness. The 33 year old former professional ice skater says his only concern now is will Johnson, the biological father of Kiara, challenge him in court for custody of the child. Johnson remains behind bars on capitol murder charges. Charnell says, “most people have 9 months to prepare for a baby, I think I had 24 hours.” But he says he is willing to do what it takes to take care of his niece just as if she were his own child!
