Brianna Jones1

A preliminary autopsy report suggests that Ricky Junior Toney, one of the suspects in a Dec. 31 double homicide in Franklin County, died of a self-inflicted wound, according to Warren County Sheriff Johnny Williams.

Toney, 34, and his brother, Joey Lamont Kearney, 16, both of Franklin County, led law enforcement officers on a manhunt that covered areas of Franklin and Vance counties before ending in southwestern Warren County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office was called to a residence on West River Road in Franklinton at 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 31 to the scene of what was believed to be a domestic dispute. According to the sheriff office’s report, there was no answer at the door when deputies arrived. Deputies were able to enter the residence through an unsecured door and found broken glass on the bedroom floor, blood pooling at the base of the bathroom door, and a mirror in the bathroom that appeared to have been shattered by a gunshot.

According to the report, the bodies of a woman and her teenage daughter were found in the bathroom. They later were identified as Akesia Michelle Toney, 37, Ricky Junior Toney’s estranged wife, and Brianna Nicole Jones, 16.—Deputies–Man-fatally-shot-after-killing-2

Triple Murder – Killed – Female Teen – Zainee Hailey (Newark, NJ)

Zainee Hailey

NEWARK — One of the teenage victims of a Christmas night shooting in Newark was a 13-year-old girl taking out the trash, a law enforcement source said today.

Zainee Hailey, 13, was killed while taking garbage out of her Schley Street house, the source said. She was a student at Bragaw Avenue Elementary School in Newark.

Also killed was Kasson Morman, 15, a resident of North Seventh Street in Newark, the source said. Mormon was a student at Central High School in Newark.

A third teenager was also injured in the shooting. The source did not identify him, but said the teenager is a 14-year-old student at Weequahic High School in Newark.

NEWARK — A 15-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three teenagers on a Newark street on Christmas night last year, a spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The boy pleaded guilty on Monday in juvenile court in connection with the murders of Zainee Hailey, Kasson Morman and Abdul Frazier, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Under the terms of a plea agreement, he faces up to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced, Carter said. But Carter said juveniles are sentenced to what is called an “indeterminate term,” meaning the parole board can release him when it determines he is rehabilitated.

The boy opened fire in the 100 block of Schley Street, because he felt “disrespected” after one of the boys apparently hit on his girlfriend, law enforcement sources have said.

Hailey, 13, was gunned down as she and her younger brother carried trash bags to the street from her family’s third-floor apartment. Hailey and Morman, 15, died shortly after the attack, and Frazier, 14, died from his injuries a few weeks later.

NEWARK — The third teenager shot on a South Ward street on Christmas night died early this morning in the hospital, authorities said,

Abdul Frazier, 14, was one of the three teenagers shot on Schley Street. He has spent the past three weeks at University Hospital where he died at 4:57 a.m. today, said Thomas Fennelly, the chief assistant Essex County Prosecutor.

The innocent Newark girl died in a hail of bullets intended for somebody else after she and her 7-year-old brother carried the holiday trash to the curb, authorities and neighbors said.

A visitor, Kasson Morman, 15, was also slain when the gunfire erupted around 10 p.m. Wednesday, while a 14-year-old boy was shot but survived — critically wounded with a bullet lodged in his spine.

Killed – Pregnant Teen – Eva Casara (Chicago, IL)

Eva Casara2

CHICAGO – A third suspect in the Christmas Day murder of a pregnant Chicago teen has been charged after surrendering Monday, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Darius D. Marshall, 19, of Dolton, Ill., is due in court Thursday to face charges of murder and attempted armed robbery. His attorney, Stuart Goldberg, told the Sun-Times his client will plead not guilty.

Marshall turned himself in after his brothers, a 16-year-old boy and 21-year-old Diante Coakley, were charged with the murder of Eva Casara, 17, over the weekend. Prosecutors say Casara was shot in the back of the head during a botched robbery in which she was allegedly participating Dec. 25. She was reportedly 26 weeks pregnant with the child of the 16-year-old suspect, who was her boyfriend.

Prosecutors have said Casara plotted with her boyfriend, his brother Coakley and another unnamed brother to commit a robbery, reports the Sun-Times. They believe Coakley fired the fatal shot, though they say Casara wasn’t the intended target.

Casara was shot in the back of the head on Wednesday. Her body was found in a residential area in Dolton around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, but police believe the shooting occurred somewhere else. Casara was taken to the hospital, where doctors saved her baby but she died.

“We believe we found the actual location where this young lady was shot at,” Dolton Police Chief John Franklin said. “It was suspected (Wednesday) night that she was not actually shot at 1102, that she was placed there. And members of the Crime Task Force have found some shell casings in the 15200 South Dorchester where we believe the actual shooting did occur there.”!/Obituary

Murder/Suicide – Killed – Female Teen – Claire Davis (Littleton, CO)

Claire Davis

Claire Davis, the 17-year-old who was shot in the head during the Dec. 13 shooting at Arapahoe High School, died Saturday afternoon with her family at her side.

The high school senior died at 4:29 p.m. at Littleton Adventist Hospital after eight days on life support.

LITTLETON, Colo. – The family of a teenage girl who was shot and killed at Arapahoe High School are promising not to sue the school district over the murder of their daughter, if Littleton Public Schools agrees to a list of requests including an arbiter’s investigation.

Claire Davis was shot by a classmate inside Arapahoe High School in December 2013. She died in the hospital eight days later.

The shooter, fellow student, Karl Pierson, took his own life after shooting Claire, investigators said.

“They want to how Karl Pierson, who was known as troubled, how he fell through cracks and why he didn’t get the help he needed,” said family spokeswoman Katy Atkinson.

Davis, 17, was shot in the head by another student with a shotgun at point-blank range at the school on Dec. 13, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said.

The father of a Colorado teen that killed a classmate asked for his son to be remembered as a person “who lost his way for a moment” on the same day a vigil was held to commemorate the victim on the one-year anniversary of her death.

Police say Pierson was looking for revenge against a librarian, but couldn’t find the faculty member and killed himself as a school resource officer closed in. Davis was just a random victim, police surmised, and the gunman and victim didn’t even know each other.

In Friday’s shooting, Pierson was armed with a shotgun, a bandolier stocked with ammunition, a machete and three Molotov cocktails, Robinson said. Pierson fired five shots within 1 minute and 20 seconds, he said.

But the 18-year-old senior also was filled with a rage that began to unravel when he was told he could no longer serve as a captain on his speech and debate team. His father said the entries in his diary, which was kept on a thumb drive and hidden in his car, began to show a downward spiral that neither he nor his ex-wife could have imagined.

Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Friday’s shooting at Arapahoe High School by 18-year-old Karl Pierson likely was motivated by retaliation against a librarian at the school.

Robinson said that it appeared the librarian was the initial target but that the gunman planned to hurt multiple people.

He said the teen bought the pump-action shotgun legally Dec. 6 at a local store.

Anyone over 18 is allowed to buy a shotgun in Colorado; only those over 21 can legally buy a handgun.

The gunman, Karl Pierson, intended to kill another person in the school but fired randomly hitting 17-year-old Claire Davis at close range. He then killed himself.[2] Claire Davis died December 21, 2013.[3]

Killed – Female Teen – Aubrey Peters (Noblesville, IN)

Aubrey Peters1

The man charged with reckless homicide in the shooting death of a Noblesville teenager in December has pleaded guilty in Hamilton County court.

Jacob Travis McDaniel, 20, Noblesville, was arrested after he fatally shot 16-year-old Aubrey Peters with a handgun he thought would be empty, police said.

McDaniel pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and pointing a firearm, both felonies, according to a plea agreement he signed Friday. The court issued an order on the plea Monday.

According to a probable cause affidavit, McDaniel, Peters and two other men were in McDaniel’s house in the 8200 block of River Run Place about 11:20 p.m. Dec. 8 when the shooting happened.

Court documents say McDaniel was showing Peters and the two others a shotgun and a handgun. Dajuan Williams, one of the men, told police that “McDaniel tried to get Aubrey to hold the gun, but she didn’t want to.”

At that point, Williams told police, McDaniel ejected the magazine from the gun, pointed the weapon at Peters, took the safety off and pulled the trigger.

McDaniel apparently thought the gun was empty, the affidavit said, but when he pulled the trigger, a round fired. Peters was taken to St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The killing prompted an outpouring of support for Peters, who two years earlier was hailed as a hero for saving two children who fell through the ice on Morse Reservoir.
