Jade, 17, Joi, 11, and their mother Stacy, were stabbed to death by the boyfriend of Jade.

Denzel Pittman and Jade had an ongoing dating relationship. They got into an argument as they were on the stairs leading up to the third floor apartment Jade shared with her mother, Stacy, and sister, Joi.

The argument became physical and Denzel started beating and strangling Jade. He then stabbed her at least 11 times in her neck, shoulder and chest.

As she cried out for help, her mother, Stacy, came to the door of the apartment. Denzel then turned his weapon on Stacy, stabbing her about 15 times in her head, chest, arms and hands.

Joi was screaming during the attack on her mother and Denzel entered the apartment and stabbed Joi in her chest and head to stop her screaming.

Witnesses identified Pittman as the person seen walking past his girlfriend lying on the apartment landing. His clothes and hands were covered in blood. They were able to give a detailed description of Denzel. That description was broadcast over the police radio, and officers from the Targeted Response Unit found Pittman walking down the street. Pittman immediately ran from the officers after spotting them, but the officers chased him and caught him before he could get away.

Denzel Pittman was charged with 3 counts of first-degree murder and is awaiting trial.
