(Newser) – The father of a boy allegedly killed by his own mother and sister in a horrific mass murder is speaking out, ABC News reports. Damon Decree Sr's estranged wife Shana Decree, 45, and their daughter Dominique Decree, 19, are accused of killing Damon and Shana's 13-year-old boy Damon Decree Jr and four other family members in a Pennsylvania apartment Monday. "I don't want them in no insane asylum" if they're guilty, he tells WTVD. "I want to see them in jail for the rest of their life." Damon Sr apparently called the cops and children's services for weeks to get them to visit to visit the Morrisville apartment. Court documents show that Bucks County Children and Youth workers visited the home Monday, got no answer, and called police, who discovered the bodies.

Damon Sr is also echoing the notion that Shana and Dominique committed the murders as part of a demonic cult practice. The family had been "talking about demons being all around them," he tells 6ABC. "Apparently they had dissected into some type of cult that they materialized online. I don't know how or what kind of cult." Police say Shana and Dominique initially blamed the killings on unknown men, but later told police "that everyone in that apartment, including the nine-year-olds and the thirteen-year-old, wanted to die," per court documents. "Shana advised that all, including the children, were talking about suicide." Police are yet to confirm a motive, and autopsies are pending, but Shana and Dominique have apparently confessed. Each faces five counts of murder and one of conspiracy. (Read more murder stories.)
