Girls, 12 and 14, accused of murdering mom after being punished for trying to mow her down

A 12-year-old girl and her 14-year-old sister are accused of murdering their mom after she punished them for trying to run her over with the family car, according to reports.

Erica Hall, 32, of Magnolia, Miss., is believed to have punished the girls by taking away their cellphones, WAPT-TV reported.

The girls are believed to have retaliated Friday night around 11:30 p.m. with a bullet to the chest and a knife in the back.

"She was stabbed in the back. The knife was still in her back," the victim's aunt Robin Coney told WLBT-TV. She died Saturday.

"The girls, when I drove up, they were like 'Tee Tee we didn't do this,'" she said. "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?'"

Hall staggered outside after being shot and stabbed and was found by her sister, according to the station. The sister went to the home after the girls went to the homes of neighbors asking for a ride to McComb because their "grandmother" had just died.

WAPT reported that the girls moved their mother to the other side of the car so that anybody driving by wouldn't see her.

Paramedics tried to revive her, the McComb Enterprise Journal reported.
