Mum and daughter, 6, shot dead and dumped in basement after row over PS5

A family dispute has left a mum and her six-year-old daughter dead at the home of the mother's boyfriend hours after a dispute over a PlayStation 5.

The bodies of the six-year-old and her mother were found dumped in a basement on the property where they had been shot and killed in Ohio, America.

Aisha Nelson, 31, and her daughter, Harper Monroe, were found dead at the scene, with Nelson's mother, Keeley saying that the pair "did not deserve" to be involved in the tragic shooting.

Aisha and Harper's bodies were discovered after a call was put into police, with a welfare check on the family requested.

According to Dayton Police Maj Brian Johns, officers had been called to the house just hours before a welfare check was put in because of a dispute over a PlayStation 5.

Officer Johns said: "No arrests were made. The officers cleared the call after about an hour and left the scene."

Their first attendance of the residence came at around midnight, but received another call hours later where the caller told them they needed "somebody to come do a wellness check."

Keeley has said officers should have done more to get involved during the first call to the home.

The grandmother said: "It was just a dispute, and I know it was a domestic dispute. And a party should have been arrested."

A suspect, Dante Rashad Hawes, 32, is currently under investigation by police for possible involvement in the crime, with his body found in Alabama with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Hawes and Aisha had been dating for over a year before her death, The Sun reported.

Major Johns added that the suspect did not have a criminal history that would indicate violence.

Speaking of her loss, Keeley said: "Right now, I wouldn’t want an enemy or the devil to feel this feeling, because there’s an empty space."
