BOSTON — Boston Police are trying to figure out what led to the murders of two sisters this week in a Dorchester apartment.

Twenty-four-year-old Judith and 21-year-old Stephanie Emile had only lived in the apartment where they were killed for a few months.

It's just a few doors down in the same building from the apartment where their mother lives.

Friends and family say all the sisters did was go to school and work.

"We want to know what happened, we want to know why, cause they didn't deserve this," said older sister Miraldo Emile. "They didn't do anything to deserve this, they're not disrespectful kids, they're not harmful people."

The two women were among 13 siblings, whose father in Haiti wanted them to live in America for better opportunities.
