Family of Women Murdered in TAMU-Commerce Dorm Suing University

Abbaney and Deja Matts

The parents of two sisters murdered in a dorm room at Texas A&M-Commerce have sued the university. An ex-boyfriend shot and killed 20-year-old Abbaney and 19-year-old Deja Matts last February. Abbey’s two-year-old son was injured in the shooting but survived. Her ex-boyfriend, the 21-year-old Jacques Smith, has been charged with capital murder. Attorney Larry Taylor recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of the family, demanding information about the investigation, campus security, and any violent crime around the premises. It will determine if they would file another lawsuit. The university denies liability in the murders.
