Woman, daughter accused of murdering 5 relatives

Murder-suicide plan behind death of 5 family members in Bucks County survivors tell police

Mother, daughter arrested after five relatives found dead in apartment

A mother and daughter have been arrested after five people, including three children were found dead, in what police believe was meant to be a mass murder-suicide.

Morrisville Chief of Police George McClay said that the two defendants were taken to hospital after officers arrived at the scene. She said that she killed one of the victims, that she and her daughter Dominque killed another together, and that Campbell killed two other victims before she herself was slain by Dominique.

"This is a awful tragedy, I just spoke with the family of all five deceased and [they] were all heartbroken". Shana then added that she and Dominique also killed a second child.

The two women are each charged with five counts of homicide and one count each of conspiracy.

According to the criminal complaint, the bodies were all in one room, while Shana and Dominique were disoriented on a bed and in another.

Cops in suburban Philadelphia say Shana Decree and her daughter Dominique Decree unleashed mayhem in a two-bedroom apartment.

A mother and daughter have been arrested after five people were found dead inside an apartment in Morrisville, Bucks County.

The victims include Shana Decree's children - Naa'Irah Smith, 25, and Damon Decree Jr., 13 - as well as Shana Decree's sister, Jamilla Campbell, 42, and Campbell's 9-year-old twin daughters, Imani and Erika Allen.

The Phillies are still seen as the favorite, but the Los Angeles Dodgers have apparently re-entered the picture. Maybe it'll be the Dodgers taking advantage of this freaky market to land Harper on a surprising deal.

It wasn't clear why Dominique Decree was hospitalized and if either woman has retained an attorney. The family welfare worker discovered furniture tossed around, broken glass and clutter.

These photos provided by the Bucks County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019, shows Shana Decree, left, and her teenage daughter Dominique Decree.

They have not yet entered pleas and attorney information was not immediately available.

According to police, the search continues for Campbell's 17-year-old son, Joshua Campbell, who authorities believe managed to escape the violence.

Shana was arraigned in court Tuesday morning and is being held without bail.

Thai Hall, 24, of Bristol, Pennsylvania, said she attended Morrisville High School with Smith and spoke with her about three months ago. She tried to blame an unknown black man for the neck injuries and repeatedly said she wanted to die.

"We're working on some theories but it wouldn't be fair of me to speculate so I'm not going to", the DA said, stressing that there are no other suspects.
