A MOTHER and her 19-year-old daughter massacred FIVE of their family members including two nine-year-old twins inside an apartment in a brutal killing spree, authorities said.
Cops were called to the flat in Morrisville, Pennsylvania, after neighbours said they hadn’t seen the residents for a week.
Shana Decree, 45, and Dominique Decree are alleged to have carried out the mass homicide.
The fatal victims included another daughter, 25-year-old Naa’Irah Smith, a son, 13-year-old Damon Decree Jr., the mum’s sister, 42-year-old Jamilla Campbell, and twin nine-year-old nieces, Imani and Erika Allen.
Two other women were taken to hospital for unknown injuries, ABC reported.
The suspects were taken into police custody and each are expected to be charged with five counts of homicide.

The motive for the crime was not known.
Police are also searching for Jamilla’s 17-year-old son, Joshua Campbell, to make sure he is safe. He is not considered a suspect in the killings.
