DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (WPIX) -- A mother and her adult daughter have pleaded not guilty to killing five of their close relatives, including three children, at an apartment outside Philadelphia.

Shana Decree, 46, and her 20-year-old daughter Dominique Decree sat side by side in court in suburban Bucks County on Tuesday and affirmed their pleas to charges of first-degree murder and conspiracy.

Last February, officers performing a welfare check found the bodies of 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. Authorities have said four were suffocated and one was strangled.
