A Baltimore mother is not criminally responsible for the murder of her two young children

BALTIMORE – A Baltimore mother has been found not criminally responsible for the August 2021 murders of her two young children.

Jameria Hall initially pleaded guilty to killing her 8-year-old son, Davin Thomas Jr. and his 6-year-old sister Da’Neria.

Their decomposing bodies were discovered in a flat on Coventry Road in the Beechfield area.

A neighbor called the police to the scene to check for an unpleasant odor.

Hall exhibited disturbing behavior towards her children for years before their deaths.

In 2018, all three were reported missing and later found in a local hospital.

This occurred after Hall reportedly set fire to her home where Da’Neria and Davin were staying.

She was later sentenced to one year in prison in this case.

It’s unclear what action Child Protective Services took after the incident, but online court records show a custody hearing was held in 2019.

Because the judge accepted doctors’ recommendations that Hall was not criminally responsible, she will be committed to a state hospital where her condition will be monitored and treated.

WMAR-2 News has contacted Hall’s attorneys at the Public Defender’s Office for comment.
