Fund established for children of Chevel and Tensia Richard

Relatives of Tensia Richard set up a fund to benefit her two young sons.

The boys -- 3 years old and 7 months old -- were left without parents when Tensia was shot and killed by her estranged husband, Chevel Richard, the boys' father. Chevel then shot himself and died.

The boys are being cared for by Tensia's parents, police have said.

People who want to give money to benefit the children can donate to the Chavelo and Ace Martinez Benefit Fund through any branch of the Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union.

The nearest branches are:

175 Lafayette Road

St. Paul, MN 55107
