PHOENIX - A Valley man said he is devastated after police said his younger brother was tortured and killed .
While mourning, Andrew Lopez is also left stunned that investigators said his own sister is responsible.
"My little brother being tortured and killed by my older sister. It's absolutely nothing you should ever have to think about," Lopez told ABC15.
When he died, investigators said 21-year-old James Moore Jr. had a list of serious injuries including two black eyes, several fractures, a punctured lung, and a flesh eating bacteria caused from lying in his urine and feces.
"She is completely evil. She should feel everything she's done to him and she deserves to live a long painful life and remember this every day what she did," Lopez said.
Lopez said his family has had a strained relationship with his sister Carlena Pinkerton and her husband, Joshua, the legal caretakers of Moore, who was mentally disabled.
Lopez said the couple would keep to themselves so their family would rarely get to see Moore, which the family now thinks may have helped hide the abuse.
Joshua's father, Raymond, wonders what the couple's 7-year-old daughter saw because she also lived at the home.
"We have no idea how much she actually seen of this. We don't know the emotional scarring which she has to endure yet," Raymond said.
The child is now in Child Protective Services custody.
An account has been set up to help the family with funeral expenses.
Donations can be made at any Wells Fargo bank to the James Moore Memorial Fund.
