Nikki Whitehead wanted the best for her twin girls. She was born to a mother who was serving time for a drug offense and despite being a wild teenager herself, becoming pregnant with twins influenced her ways.

Her twins, Jasmiyah and Tasmiyah, were the perfect girls with big ambitions until they became teenagers themselves.

Their relationship with the mother began to unravel and soon, Nikki would find herself arguing with her girls almost daily.

Things got so bad that they moved out of the home to live with their great grandmother. Then, just one week after returning home to Nikki’s place, something went horribly wrong, and soon, the girls had to figure out a way to live without their mother.

The two mug shots are from Rockdale County Jail.

Even though the twin girls were not suspects, to begin with, investigators would often talk to the girls in hopes of understanding what happened. The twins tried to offer up everything from love triangles to possible marijuana use as reasons why someone would want to kill their mother. But the story was much different than that.

Years later, they would share a story that would not only shock investigators but gave them each a sentence of 30 years in prison. Tas and Jas would share how they stabbed their mother to death, cutting her spinal cord.

They would watch her die in a bathtub full of blood.

The daughters of Nikki Whitehead were each sentenced and despite having parole hearings, remain behind bars. They will be in their 40s when they are done serving their sentences and have a chance at living a normal life outside of prison.
