CLAIBORNE CO., Miss. (WLBT) - Claiborne County Sheriff Edward Goods says the mother and aunt of 14-year-old Twaneshia Hicks were charged with murder.

Good says the teen’s mother, Twan Hicks, and aunt, Tarinette Hicks, were charged with first-degree murder Friday.

Twaneshia Hicks appeared in court on June 14th and received a $100,000 bond, according to Goods.

The mother and aunt also received bond.

In May, 14-year-old Twaneshia Hicks fatally stabbed 16-year-old D’Tavious Dorsey around the Hermanville Apartments near Highway 18. 

Goods said the stabbing stemmed from “trash talk” over a basketball game between the two teens. He also said the victim did not live at the apartment but was visiting a relative who lived near the apartment complex.
