Two twin sisters have been charged in connection to the murder of their teenage brother who was strangled to death in Maryland in 2017, officials said Friday.

Lemae and Leaundra Matthews, the 23-year old twins, were two of three people busted for conspiring to commit the brutal murder after new evidence has come to light.

Daniel Howard, 25, was also arrested for the killing, police said, according to local reports.

All three have been charged with first-degree murder and are being held without bond.

Their arrests come years after Tysean Lipford, 24, a former boyfriend and father to two of Leaundra Matthew’s children, was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he admitted to choking the victim, teenager Christian Matthews, to death inside of the home he shared with his sister in Silver Spring, Maryland. 

Text messages between Lipford and Leaundra Matthews revealed that she had asked Lipford to kill her teenage brother after he had threatened her and her child, coldly saying in a text message to Lipford that  “he [Matthews] had to go,” according to court documents obtained by Fox 5.

Tysean Lipford was sentenced to 30 years in prison for choking Christian Matthews, 17, to death.

Leaundra Matthews also allegedly told her mother that she’d helped kill her brother, showing no remorse for the alleged fratricide saying “It had to be done” and that Matthews “wasn’t going to stop,” court documents said.

Howard, referred to as “Ghost” in court documents, allegedly held Matthews down while Lipford choked him to death.

All three are now being held without bond.
