Dominique is pleading innocent. When interviewed by police the teenager told police that "everyone at the apartment wanted to die" by committing suicide. She refused to give specifics on the deaths.
The murder victims are identified as Shana's two children other Naa'ilrah Smith, 25, Damon Decree Jr., 13, their aunt Jamilla Campbell, 42, and Jamilla's twin daughters Imani and Erika Allen, aged 9.
