The mother of 9-year-old Trinity Love Jones has been arrested for her murder.
28-year-old Taquesta Graham was extradited from Texas to Los Angeles last week on an unrelated warrant. But, now she has been booked for the murder of her daughter, whose body was discovered in a duffle bag down an embankment in Hacienda Heights.
Taquesta is expected to be officially charged with murder on Wednesday (March 19).
Last week, Graham’s boyfriend, Emiel Hunt, was charged with one count of murder.
Via ABC7 News:
During the past week, Investigators learned Graham, Hunt and Trinity moved from a family member’s home in Long Beach in May of 2018. During the past 10 months, the extended family had only seen or heard from the couple and Trinity just a few times, according to the press release. Investigators learned Hunt, Graham and Trinity were homeless just prior to her death and were residing in a Santa Fe Springs motel or in their vehicle.
Investigators previously believed the victim had been left at the location within 48 hours prior to the time of her body’s discovery. Since then, additional information revealed that Trinity’s body was actually left at the crime scene during the afternoon hours of March 1, the release stated.
I hope Taquesta and Emiel are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Trash.
