OKMULGEE, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma woman accused of killing her 18-year-old son and wounding a teenage daughter has told police she shot her children in the head while they were sleeping.
In an affidavit released by police Friday, Amy Hall told the Okmulgee County sheriff’s office that she shot her son, Kayson Toliver, while he slept in his bed early Thursday. Hall also said she shot her older daughter as she slept and that she tried to shoot her 14-year-old daughter, but the girl escaped into a bathroom. The 16-year-old daughter remained in serious condition Friday.
Hall told police that she had intended to kill herself after killing her three children, and said she was trying to protect them from who she claimed was an abusive father.
