Wasel Ali was born first and buried first, six years ago in a cemetery outside Baltimore.

His identical twin Wael was born second and buried second, on Tuesday, right next to his brother.

Wael’s funeral took place less than two years after he stood trial for killing his 19-year-old brother, who was found asphyxiated in a field not far from the Mall in Columbia in 2007. Jurors could not agree on a verdict.

On Friday night, Wael, 25, was killed outside Atlanta, where he’d moved to rebuild his life after his brother’s death. Police said a friend of Wael’s accidentally shot him in the front of the neck — the same location as his brother’s fatal injury.
