(KTRE) - A Lufkin doctor, his wife, and sister-in-law were killed in a plane crash outside of McComb, Mississippi early Sunday morning.

The local coroner identified the deceased as Dr. Taylor Pickett and Laura Pickett, and Jacqueline Ham. 

According to Yana Ogletree, a spokeswoman for Lufkin's Memorial Hospital, Pickett was a thoracic surgeon on staff.

Reports say the group went to New Orleans Saturday night to watch a friend, who's a musician, perform. They were on their way back to McComb when the plane went down.

Jacquelyn lives just outside McComb. The plane crashed about 4 miles from the McComb-Pike County airport.

The Picketts leave behind four children together.
