Shana Decree, 45, and her daughter, Dominique Decree, 19, have been charged with the murder of five members of their family.

On February 25, 2019, Pennsylvania police found the two women in their apartment with the bodies of the five individuals they had allegedly killed.

"Get out of here, you're a demon. You're not wanted here, you're going to die"

BIZARRE BEHAVIOR TRIGGERED CONCERN

A relative of the family, Tyquilla Campbell, visited the two women and found their behavior disturbing and bizarre and became concerned for the welfare of the children.

When Bucks County child welfare officials showed up unannounced, no-one answered the door. A maintenance man opened the door, and the bodies were discovered in one of the bedrooms.

According to Dominique, her aunt Jamilla had killed one of her own daughters before becoming a victim herself.

THREE CHILDREN WERE AMONG THE VICTIMS

Among the victims of the murderous mother-daughter killers were three children between the ages of nine and 13, one of which was Shana's own son, Damon Decree Jr, 13. The other two children were Imani and Erika Allen, the twin 9-year-old daughters of another victim.

SHANA DECREE KILLED 2 OF HER OWN CHILDREN

The two adult victims were Jamilla Campbell, 42, and another of Shana's children, daughter Naa'Irah Smith, 25.

Shana and Dominique claimed that their victims had "wanted to die" because they believed the world would be coming to an end in February 2019.

DOMINIQUE ACCUSED ONE OF THE VICTIMS OF MURDER

According to Dominique, her aunt Jamilla had killed one of her own daughters before becoming a victim herself.

Friends and family of the two women are reeling in disbelief, with a general consensus that they were "amazing people" and that Shana was particularly religious.

"Every family has their struggles but they always stood together as a team, from what I could tell."

The two women were charged with five counts of criminal homicide each, and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

A COLLEGE STUDENT POISONED HIS ROOMMATE

In another frightening story of murder at close quarters, a Northampton college student nearly succumbed at the hands of his murderous roommate Yukai Yang, 22, a chemistry major.

Juwan Royal, who is African American, had had problems with his roommate, who is a citizen of China, before. Yang had already been accused of harassing Royal and of scrawling racist graffiti on his roommate's belongings.

Royal now recalls that on one occasion he had drunk water from a bottle that left a burning sensation on his tongue. Within weeks, he was vomiting so much that he had to be rushed to the hospital.

Doctors discovered that his blood contained high levels of thallium - a colorless and odorless ingredient in rat poison.

After a month-long investigation, the Northampton Police arrested Yang and charged him with attempted murder.

In a related story, a $50,000 reward offered for information leading to the arrest of suspected cop-killers in New Jersey.
