In January, a beautiful 34-year-old single mother of 16-year-old girls was found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in her Conyers, Georgia, home. The daughters found their mother's body when they returned from school.

Now, police are saying that was all a lie. They have charged the twin daughters with their mother's murder.

Tasmiyah and Jasmiyah Whitehead were charged Friday.

According to some reports, the girls were upset when they were returned to the custody of their mother -- just four days before the murder -- after being raised by their great-grandmother.
