Family says children were inside home

According to one of the first family members to arrive at the west Detroit house on Coyle Street, the 5-year-old daughter of one of the three victims was in the house. She apparently had been with the bodies for several hours.

"Now I think she is going to be traumatized for the rest of her life because she saw her mom get killed," said Kenyetta Hunt, the victim's cousin.

There was also a baby girl in the house.
