Mom Faces Multiple Murder Charges After Trying To Kill Her 3 Children
OKMULGEE COUNTY, OK — A 39-year-old Oklahoma mother is facing multiple murder charges after police say she confessed to killing one of her children and shooting two others.
When officers responded to a 911 call from the family’s home at around 6:30 A.M. on Thursday, they found the dead body of 18-year-old Kayson Toliver. They also found two other teenagers who had gunshot wounds.
The children’s mother, Amy Hall, told the district attorney that she “was so sorry” that she tried to kill her three children, according to a court affidavit obtained by KJRH.
Hall allegedly admitted to shooting Toliver in the head while he was asleep, and then shooting 16-year-old Kloee Toliver.
The noise of the gunshots woke her 14-year-old, according to the affidavit, and Hall then shot her as well as she fled to the bathroom.
According to reports, Hall said that she was trying to save her children from abuse inflicted by their father. Additionally, she had intended to turn her gun on herself, but her 14-year-old daughter was able to get the gun away from her.
Okmulgee Police Chief Joe Prentice called the scene “exceptionally tragic.”
Hall was picked up by the police after after a high-speed car chase that reached speeds of almost 100 mph for several miles.
She has been arrested on one count of first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill.
She may soon face an additional first-degree murder charge since doctors have declared Kloee Toliver brain dead. They said that Kloee will remain on life support until her organs can be donated.
