A mother and daughter have been arrested and charged with killing five family members inside of their two-bedroom Morrisville apartment.
Just when you thought you’ve heard it all…
A mother and daughter have been arrested and charged with killing five family members (including children) inside of their two-bedroom apartment in Morrisville, Pennsylvania.
On Monday, around 4 p.m., a caseworker from the Bucks County Children and Youth Department found victims Naa’Irah Smith, 25, Damon Decree Jr., 13, Jamilla Campbell, 45, and 9-year-old twins Imani and Erika Allen slain in one of the bedrooms.
Shana Decree and her daughter Dominique Decree denied knowing what happened and were treated as survivors when they were rushed to Jefferson Bucks Hospital.
Shana initially said Campbell’s boyfriend and two unknown men killed everyone except her and Dominique.
Then, she confessed to killing one of the children. Shana said she and Dominique killed a second child.
They both claimed Jamilla killed Naa’Irah and in turn, Dominique killed Jamilla.
Via NY Post:
In the hospital, the teen had “visible injuries to her neck” and told cops they were caused by an unknown black male. She also “asked if her family was alive” and “repeatedly advised her wish to die,” the affidavit said.
The bodies were found around 4 p.m. Monday by the caseworker who was conducting a wellness check at the home and had asked a maintenance worker to check the apartment when no one answered.
Inside the first-floor apartment, there was furniture turned over and “broken glass and clutter throughout” and Shana and Dominique were found in bed, appearing “disoriented,” in the same bedroom as the bodies, the affidavit said.
Four of the victims were found on the floor, while Damon’s body was lying in bed.
Jamilla’s 17-year-old son, Joshua Campbell, was found unharmed in New Jersey.
Thank God he was not at home when the murders took place.
Both Shana Decree and Dominique Decree face face five counts of criminal homicide and conspiracy and remain in the county jail without bail.
