"We trusted you. We really cared about you, and you just, you did this to us," said Jasmine Lee, Jayde's sister. "She was really everything to us. That's the only sister that I have. I don't have another one."
Jayde leaves behind a 9-year-old daughter, Serenity, who the family says is being strong. Family described them as inseparable.
"Their umbilical cord is still attached. They were still attached," said Jayde's mother, Cheryl Lee. "They are so much alike."
Jayde and Szydlowski had been together since March. Jayde's mother and siblings said they didn't think he was capable of this, but they did see signs. They said he was verbally abusive.
"She held it back behind closed doors. It wasn't all OK," Cheryl said. "I just want to know, do he feel anything? Do he have any kind of feelings?"
Szydlowski is being held on a $100,000, 10% bond. Jayde's family said it doesn't feel like justice.
"It don't do nothing for us. It don’t do nothing for us it. It don't bring her back," Jasmine said.
Jayde's family has made a GoFundMe page to help them cover her funeral.
