ONEONTA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama coroner has identified the four members of a Jackson, Tennessee, family killed in a weekend small plane crash.

AL.com reports that the victims were identified as 45-year-old Joseph Connell Crenshaw, 43-year-old Jennifer Dawn Crenshaw, 16-year-old Jacob Addison Crenshaw and 14-year-old Jillian Celeste Crenshaw.

The plane crashed in Blount County Saturday afternoon.
