The family of Brittany Wade, 17, wants custody of her two sons.
Wade was found buried in a shallow grave behind a Valdosta home in the 1100 block of Bunche drive in late July.
Wade's ex-boyfriend and father of their two children, Jonathan Barrett, 21, is charged with her murder.
Brittany was visiting her children at that home when she was murdered.
"She was trying to make it good for her and her kids," said Cynthia Woodard, the victim's aunt. "Her last words to me, sitting on this very porch was, 'Auntie, I'm trying to get my kids, that's why I got a job.'
Woodard says both children are currently in the custody of the Department of Family and Child Services.
The Wade family has supervised visits with the children for a few hours each week.
