LOUISVILLE, Ky (WDRB) -- Police say they've arrested two men in connection with a 1-year-old's murder and while police look for other possible suspects, the family makes a plea for them to come forward.

A video given to WDRB by the family of 1-year-old murder victim Ne'riah Miller shows the child dancing to a hit song.

Her great-grandmother Sherrie Miller says her grand baby had rhythm. "My grand baby loved dancing and loved her music," she told WDRB.

That innocent joy expressed in the video came to an end last week when Ne-riah and her mother Cierra Miller-Twyman, were shot on their front porch. Ne'riah was killed. Twyman is recovering in the hospital.

"My family is really grieving hard, really grieving hard. That is the first great-granddaughter that I had in my life, in my life and I'll never get to see her again," said Miller.

Police have arrested Trey Anderson and Michael Dunn, who admit to police they were involved in the crime.

LMPD is not saying if or how the suspects and victims knew each other. 

While WDRB News has discovered that Trey Anderson and Cierra Twyman attended Iroquois High School together, Sherrie Miller says no one in her family knows either of the suspects. 

"My family don't know them. Never seen them a day in their life either," said Miller.

When asked how she felt about the arrests, Miller said "I'm glad they got them. It was like a relief came over me and I was like thank you Jesus. Thank you Jesus. They got them."

But police could still be looking for the person who pulled the trigger.

"We do feel that there may be more people involved," said Lt. Todd Kessinger, LMPD Homicide. Those people have not come forward.

"They need to go on and turn themselves in. You need to come up and step up to the plate. Be a man about it," said Miller.

Jerald Muhammad with Brothers helping Brothers spoke at the press conference Tuesday evening about the importance of the community pressuring any possible suspects. 

"The street code is people in the streets don't tell on each other. We want to encourage those men who are locked up to talk and to do the right thing. It's not snitching for you to give up information," Muhammad said.
