MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A large pledge has been made to help three young kids who lost their parents in a murder-suicide in Milwaukee.  

An anonymous donor says he or she will put up $10,000, if others match it with the same amount.

Alderman Bob Donovan started the charity fund, after Dontavion Smith shot his girlfriend Janie Jefferson and then killed himself.

It happened six days before Christmas at their home on Milwaukee's south side. Both parents were 26.

Donovan said the anonymous donor contacted him Monday. Contributions are being taken at Tri-City National Bank branches.
