PIKE CO., Miss. (WLBT) - The defendant in a Pike County murder trial is seeking a change of venue.
Investigators say Hall and her 12-year-old sister stabbed and shot their mother. Amariyona is being charged as an adult.
Hall’s defense team argues that a jury in Pike County would be prejudiced against her because of the publicity the murder received.
The trial is set to begin on February 9, 2021.
