Violent Abuser Out On Bails Kills Two Sisters, Shoots Toddler In College Dorm

Sandy Malone

Police have charged Jacques Dshawn Smith for murdering Abbaney and Deja Matts Monday, and another man killed on Dec. 31.

Denton, TX – The 21-year-old man who murdered two sisters and shot a toddler in a Texas dorm room on Monday has also been charged in connection with a killing on New Year’s Eve.

The series of incidents that led to the sisters’ death on Monday began on Jan. 27, when Garland police arrested Jacques Dshawn Smith for an attack on his ex-girlfriend, 20-year-old Abbaney Matts, KTVT reported.

Smith was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he threw a television at his ex-girlfriend.

Police said that Smith also hit Abbaney Matts with a frying pan and a lamp, and threatened her with a knife, WFAA reported.

Smith’s attack on Abbaney Matts also violated his probation.

KTVT reported that Smith’s criminal history included several aggravated robberies, thefts, and incidences of evading arrest.

Despite violating his probation and the violent attack on his ex-girlfriend, Smith was released on a $15,000 bond just two days after he attacked Abbaney Matts.

The judge issued a protective order to keep Smith away from the victim, but that didn’t stop him, WFAA reported.

On Monday morning, Smith tracked Abbaney Matts down at her little sister’s dorm room on the Texas A&M University – Commerce campus and killed her, KTVT reported.

Smith fatally shot Abbaney Matts and her sister, 19-year-old Deja Matts, and also shot Abbaney Matts’ two-year-old son in the leg.

“Who shoots a baby? Who does that? ​Let alone two girls?” Timothy Matts, the distraught father of the murdered sisters, asked. “This is what some coward did. They left my daughter without her big sisters.”

On Tuesday, Denton police served a search warrant in Rowlett related to the murders in Commerce and also found evidence related to another murder on Dec. 31, 2019, WFAA reported.

Denton detectives obtained a second search warrant for the residence and later arrested three men in connection with the murder of 22-year-old Steven Daniels on New Year’s Eve.

One of those suspects – Smith – was transported to the Hunt County Jail by Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and also charged with the murders of Abbaney and Deja Matts, WFAA reported.

Ummm...people released on low bail after committing crimes of violence? Just my guess but I know that it was unforeseeable. /sarc

All of this is terrible, but can I ask a question? Why is there a toddler in a college dorm? I guess student aid now pays for daycare?

At least they had bail on him. New York would have just bypassed it the first time and then let him out again the second time.

Liberal judges could be voted out, but will not be. Sad to say, but I thank God I will not be of this earth in the next 10-20 years to witness the destruction of this great country and the constitution. As I have always said, in the end God will sort it out.

In New York this killer wouldn't have been required to post bail on the original charge. A notice to appear, like a traffic ticket, and on your on your way to find another victim.

I think the NFL and players association should create a new commercial about this victim. Like the commercial they aired for the super bowl, they can have a reenactment showing how this poor woman was shot and killed. They could use that moment to highlight how people of color are unfairly incarcerated.

a protection order that doesn't prevent a violent criminal from attacking someone? shocking. Next thing you will say that gun laws don't prevent criminals from possessing firearms.....

Very sad situation for all of the victims of this animal... hope he gets a lethal penalty.

Quality judiciary that could allow this to happen. Catch and release never worked except for fish...and that is only because you wanted the fish to grow and proliferate. Maybe that is the idea behind this idiocy backed by the liberals?

Once again, here we are. Where there is potential for violence, there is potential for death. Not all dv suspects should be treated with the same rule book. His history speaks for itself and yet, we let him go.

Restraining orders are USELESS against violent felons and those who are charged with violent offenses. For God sake this guy telegraphed that he was a threat and the judge gives him bail. The judge needs to be evaluated for both fitness for duty and common sense. As "The Hammer" says above, buy a gun, get your LTC, practice monthly (10-10-10 = ten shots, ten seconds, ten yards) and carry always.

Maybe the judge would like to explain why he did revoke this guy's probation before he killed these two women.

This guy NEVER should’ve been out!!!!!!!! If I was the family of those girls I’d be suing someone. That monster BEVER should’ve been out of jail to start and those 2 beautiful girls would still be here. And that poor baby wouldn’t have lost his mama and that father wouldn’t have lost 2 CHILDREN! This pathetic liberal thought process on criminals IS CRIMINAL! I would personally sue the JUDGE! That is his “decision” to make. That was NOT based on criminal history. This is sad and pathetic and ridiculous and sad and just wrong! It needs to stop!

Imagine if real people who mattered were killed in this tragedy? Crisis averted this time, but next time it could be one of our relatives, friends, or neighbors. Shudder to think.😎🙈💩

Democrats are easy on criminals obviously look at no bail in NY, sanctuary cities, all Democrat run. This Judge and those like him who allow these people out with that kind of history really need to be held accountable. But that won't happen most are Democrats.

My State is going the wrong way. My brother got charged with Agg Assault with a deadly weapon. His bail was 50k. That was 25 years ago. Of course he's white so..he wouldn't get a low bail even now.

When I saw the headline I thought for sure that this was the result of Cuomo’s misguided liberal NY policies, being the mental giant that he is. Imagine my surprise when I saw that it happened in TEXAS, of all places! Maybe one of you locals can tell us if the area where this went down is being overrun by Californians trying to escape the madness, only to bring the same wrongheaded policies with them that caused the very madness they were trying to escape. It’s sad to see that the indoctrination of the left in Cali has been so complete. It’s like a cult. Heaven help us all!

I'm sure they will raise his bail to $20,000. That will teach him.

Wow, I can’t believe he violated that protection order. I guess next you’ll tell me that Jeffrey Epstein really did kill himself.

He never should have been released on bail with his history of violence. Must be a liberal judge. In New York they did away with bail except for the worst of crimes but they let people who have seriously assaulted someone right back on the street. Now they have a law that the defendant can learn who the witnesses are two weeks before the trial. A young man had been brutally attacked by MS-13 and was going to testify against them which is dangerous to do. The defendant found out that he was going to testify and the young man was found beaten to death. Criminals have more rights than victims. But that’s the liberal way.

Someone needs to find out what piece of shit judge let that man walk for that bail amount, and then make her famous.

Are you serious... So this judge needs to be the one explaining to this family why their daughters were murdered because of his judgement of giving him a low bail after he already assaulted her in the first place... And the poor child innocent child was injured due to this judges stupidity he should go to jail right along with the suspect prayers for the girls family such a sad ending
