But Donald Groning's mother, 60 year old Wanda Emmons was also arrested. We tried to talk with Emmons, who posted bond late Monday night, but she wouldn't comment on camera. She did say, however, that the full story hasn't been told.
"They seemed to be a happy family. I just can't imagine Donald doing that," says Milburn.
"We love them. It's hard. It was hard for me to believe. There's got to be something else behind it," says Milburn.
So why does the family think this all might have happened?
"I don't really know. It could be an old grudge or something. Don is a better person than that" says Milburn.
But regardless, the family had one major concern for now.
"I just hope and pray that everything comes out for the best on both sides," says Milburn.
