It was a New Year’s Eve party and Joyce Turner, 40, and some of her daughters were in attendence.
About 5:15 am one of Turner’s daughter’s was dancing with her boyfriend Challah Hall, 21. Allegedly during the dance the daughter knocked into Hall. And according to one report Hall grabbed her arm and the two began arguing. Some have said the two were just “fooling around.”
Turner saw the commotion, some have said she “took offense” and allegedly tried to pull Challah Hall away from her daughter, then at some point while she was holding him from behind she somehow managed to grab a kitchen knife. Reaching around Hall she stabbed him in the chest once.
Someone in the lobby of the apartment building heard someone calling for help and they flagged down a police officer. Hall was found lying on the lobby floor bleeding and he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 9:43 am on Monday, New Year’s Day.
Joyce Turner was arrested and has been charged with first degree murder.
