An Ellis County mother who was charged with stabbing her five children and killing three of them is expected to face additional charges.


According to a representative from the Ellis County Sheriff's Office, they are currently in the process of gathering information regarding the case, but have stated that additional charges are likely to be brought against the mother.


Despite Child Protective Services' promise to provide updates on Monday via email, FOX 4 has not received any communication from them. The mother of the children has been arrested and charged with their murders, while two of her other children remain hospitalized.


Shamaiya Hall, who has been arrested four times in Dallas County between 2014 and 2020, has a substantial criminal record. Her previous charges include theft, burglary, assault, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She also has multiple mug shots on file.


Following the devastating murders of three children, allegedly committed by their mother, members of the community have many questions and some may need time to grieve. Stafford Elementary School will provide counseling services to both students and staff who may require support during this difficult time.


According to the Ellis County Sheriff's Office, the 25-year-old mother killed three out of her five children across the street from the school, after a decision was made by a Child Protective Services investigator to remove the children from their home.


Two of Hall's children suffered serious injuries and were hospitalized. According to family members who spoke with FOX 4, the children were stabbed. The family also revealed that the children resided at the location with a relative.


Located directly across the street from Stafford Elementary School, the house has become the center of attention in the community. As parents waited in the pick-up line, some shared their thoughts with FOX 4 about the tragic incident. Juana Gonzales mentioned that she works with Hall's cousin.



"We love our kids. So we don’t think how the mom can do that to her kids. We can’t imagine," she said. "I don’t have words to tell you. I’m really sorry. She was too sad. She was crying."


On Monday, the school had counselors and therapy dogs available to provide support to both students and staff as they attempted to process the tragic events that took place in their small Ellis County town. Counseling services were also offered at the nearby Central Baptist Church.


According to jail records, Hall is a resident of Forney. On Sunday, a FOX 4 crew went to her home, but nobody answered the door. Although neighbors were aware of the tragic incident, they were unaware that Hall lived in their vicinity.



"It’s completely crazy. I’ve seen it all over the news, TikTok, Facebook, I mean it’s all over the place and no idea. It’s insane to me that, two houses down," Sajah Hicks said.


Neighbors disclosed that the home usually does not see much activity. However, when the FOX 4 crew was present outside the house, someone was spotted in the garage. Despite attempts to ask questions, the individual refused to respond and opted to close the garage door instead.


Hall has a criminal history that includes a guilty plea for felony property crimes in 2016. Additionally, in 2021, she pled guilty to assault charges for causing bodily injury to someone by biting them.


According to multiple family members who spoke with FOX 4, Hall's twin sister, Troyshae Hall, allegedly stabbed her own 7-year-old daughter to death in 2021.





Court documents indicate that Troyshae's case has yet to go to trial due to her being hospitalized for mental health reasons. As for the family of the Hall sisters, they expressed feeling a deep sense of sadness and grief to fox 4.


"Everybody can have their own you know thought process about what could’ve happened, but we can’t undo what has happened, but what we can do is we can come together and pray," Rayla Morrison said. 


To respect the privacy of the children involved, their names have not been disclosed. The tragic incident claimed the lives of a 6-year-old boy and twin 5-year-olds (a boy and a girl), while a 4-year-old boy and a 13-month-old girl were left hospitalized. 


In light of the victims being minors, the Ellis County District Attorney's Office stated that they will not release the arrest affidavit.
