TX - Gabriella Guerrero, 3, & Natalye Price, 1, beaten to death, 24 July 2014
Preliminary autopsy results Thursday indicated the deaths of Natalye Price, 1, and Gabriella Guerrero, 3, were homicides.
Quitman police said the bodies were discovered July 24 after officers responded to a report of two children not breathing. Witnesses reported seeing a man running from the apartment and throwing items into a trash bin.
Police later arrested Thomas Wayne Liles, 19, of Quitman on a charge of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Liles remained in custody Friday with bond set at $50,000. Investigators declined to release further details on Liles, whose original bond was $25,000.
And just days before the sisters' deaths, police were called to their apartment for an alleged assault. An incident report shows Liles cut himself, but it says he didn't hit or threaten the girls or their mother, Daphne McDaniels.
Liles was kicked off the property when McDaniels told police she didn't want him around her kids and wanted him to leave.

We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

This is a horrible case. I mean how can you kill even one of your kids by accident, let alone both? Did this woman just go on a rampage killing her kids out of nowhere? From reports, it didn't seem like she had been abusing them before hand. There was accusations of neglect and CPS ruled the children to be okay and dropped it. This is just too confusing and heartbreaking. I will never understand! RIP sweet girls.

German says this has made a hard week even harder.
"I just lost my nieces, we don't need this on us," German said. "It's like everyone is being hurt and they don't care."
German says he and his fiancee have been late on rent payments but have talked about it with the management company. He doesn't see any other reason to be evicted.
It's funny he never denies any allegations of being a part of anything. This gets stranger and stranger.
