Mississippi Teen's Father Pays $100,000 Bond to Free Her After She's Charged with Killing He
14-year-old Amariyona Hall is now free on bond after her father has come to her rescue. Hall, along with her younger sister, was charged with the January stabbing and shooting death of their mother in Pike County Mississippi.
According to WLBT:
"Pike County Coroner Jason Jones said 32-year-old Erica Hall of Magnolia was pronounced dead at Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center.
According to her family, she died at the hands of her own children, who were taken into custody.
Relatives of Erica Hall said she was stabbed repeatedly inside her mobile home before she staggered outside to take her last breaths in the front yard.
“She was stabbed in the back. The knife was still in her back,” said Robin Coney, Hall’s aunt.
The 42-year-old is devastated by the horrifying way her niece was killed.
Coroner Jones said Hall was stabbed multiple times in her upper torso and back, and also suffered a gunshot wound to the chest.
“The girls, when I drove up, they were like ‘Tee Tee we didn’t do this,’” said Coney. “And I was like ‘OK, if y’all didn’t do it, where were y’all when the people that was doing it did it?’”
Family members said Hall was home alone with the two girls Friday night when an argument occurred.
“It was her gun. It was in her car,” said Coney. “So they had got it out. So I guess when they were doing all that to her, she was probably trying to get to her gun to fight for her life.”
After the murder, Coney said the girls walked into the night asking neighbors for a ride to McComb because their grandmother had just died.
The family across the street wanted to talk with their mother first, so she called her, but got no answer.
Amariyona and her younger sister then reportedly walked to the home of other relatives farther down the road.
That’s when Coney said Hall’s younger sister, Ebony, went to Hall’s home, and found her lying on her back near the driver’s side of her car."
Two other children, ages 16 and one, were at the home at the time of the incident but were not involved.
The girls were taken to jail and sat there until Hall's father posted her bond on this past Saturday. The younger sister, who is only 12-years-old has been charged as a juvenile but, by Mississippi law which states that anyone aged 13 and older who commits a crime will be charged as an adult, Hall's charges could bear a heavier sentence.
The week before the alleged murder, the girl's mother placed a call to 9-1-1 stating that one of her daughters was "trying to run her over". There was no record on which daughter she was referring to.
It is unclear whether Hall's father, Eddie Issac (right), is also the father of the 12-year-old charged in this case as her identity, while speculated, has to remain unknown. He does, however, share the same last name as Ms. Hall's oldest daughter. Erica Hall's Facebook profile states that she was the mother of five children, four daughters and one son.
Amariyona will return to court at a later date which has not yet been set.
