PIKE COUNTY, MS (WLBT) - The Pike County 14-year-old charged in her mother’s murder has been released on bond.

Detective Chris Bell with the Pike County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Amariyona Hall was released from jail after her father posted bond on Saturday. Bond was set at $100,000. A judge said she would be released if she could come up with 10% of the money.

In January, 32-year-old Erica Hall was found brutally attacked and killed in the front yard of her home.

According to her family, she died at the hands of her own children, who were taken into custody.

Fourteen-year-old Amariyona Hall and her 12-year-old sister allegedly stabbed then shot their mother. Amariyona has been charged as an adult and her case went before a grand jury on March 5.

According to WLBT, Pike County Chief Investigator Chief Bell says he spoke to both girls and the 14-year-old says they planned the attack days prior, taking a gun out of mom’s car to use later. The night of, the 14-year-old woke up the mother and told her someone was at the door. The girls tried to stab their mom when she got up, but it didn’t work. The teen says her sister then shot the gun.

Evidence says both of the girls had gun residue on their hands.

No additional court date has been determined yet as Pike County officials continue to gather evidence in the case.
