Mother Sent Behind Bars for Life after She Killed Her 3 Teenage Kids in Oklahoma, Said she Saved her Kids from their Abusive Dad Forever

Okmulgee, OK: A mother brutally shot her 3 teen kids when they were sleeping at their residence in Okmulgee.

A life sentence was handed down to an Oklahoma lady who admitted to the murder of her two teenage children while they slept and to the gunshot death of her fourteen-year-old son, who managed to escape.

In a statement released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, it was announced that Amy Leann Hall, 43, was sentenced to life in prison for the 2018 murders of her son, Kayson, 18, and daughter, Kloee, 16, by Chief Judge Ronald A. White of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.

After entering guilty pleas to two charges of murder and one count of assault with intent to commit murder, Hall, of Okmulgee, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. It was ordered that the sentences run simultaneously.

Nov. 28, 2022 was the date of Hall’s guilty plea. The U.S. Attorney stated that investigators found evidence that Hall shot her sleeping son in the head in the wee hours of November 1, 2018, murdering him on the spot.

Then, Hall went to the bedroom of her two sleeping daughters, ages 16 and 14, and shot them both in the head. After Kloee’s brain death, she was removed from life support.

The 14-year-old daughter of Hall, who was injured in the head and neck area but escaped unharmed, according to authorities.

The girl, who was just fourteen years old at the time, managed to get away to the bathroom, where she persuaded her mother to surrender the firearm, as reported by the authorities.

“She kind of talked [Hall] down,” Duston Todd, an investigator for the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office, said back then. Confronting an assailant of your kind is an act of great bravery.

The friend of Kayson, who was staying the night in his room, contacted the deputies and asked them to come get him at 6:30 in the morning.

All of them woke up to this, according to Todd. “To everyone’s surprise,” she said.

According to Todd, Hall fled the scene of the crime and was apprehended following a high-speed pursuit with police that lasted four miles and reached speeds of over 110 miles per hour on a nearby highway.

The 16-year-old daughter of Hall passed away at the hospital four days after being injured; she never recovered consciousness.

A probable cause affidavit states that Hall first informed the police that she was unsure of the motivation behind shooting her children.

In hindsight, she admitted that she believed she was protecting children from her abusive ex-husband, who she had accused of numerous crimes throughout their tumultuous divorce, and that “some part of me thought I was saving them.”

According to divorce papers, Hall and her husband had a contentious custody battle in 2016.

Todd stated that there is no evidence to support the claims of violence against Hall’s ex-partner.

According to her probable cause affidavit, Hall informed authorities that she had intended to murder her children and herself. However, “[her daughter] interrupted the plan, taking the pistol from her,” as stated in the document.

Hall admitted her guilt when she spoke with the police. “I was so sorry,” she stated.
