Geramie Hart, who celebrated his 16th birthday a few weeks before these crimes, and his 14-year-old girlfriend, Ashley Jones, apparently planned to kill members of Ashley’s family because her family did not approve of Ashley’s relationship with Hart. Ashley and her 10-year-old sister, Mary Jones, lived with their grandparents, 76-year-old Deroy Nalls and 75-year-old Mary Nalls.   One of Deroy and Mary’s daughters and Ashley’s aunt, 30-year-old Millie Nalls, also lived in the house.

Late in the evening on August 29, 1999, Deroy was in the den watching television.   His wife, daughter, and younger granddaughter were asleep in their rooms.   Ashley let Hart into the house;  he was armed with Deroy’s .38 caliber pistol, which Ashley had given him earlier.   Ashley and Hart entered the den, and Hart shot Deroy twice in the face.   Deroy did not die immediately;  he stumbled toward the kitchen.

Ashley Jones and Hart then entered Millie’s bedroom and shot her three times.   She survived the gunshots, and they then hit her with portable heaters, stabbed her in the chest, and set her room on fire. The pair next entered Mary Nalls’s bedroom and fired the last bullet from the gun into her shoulder.   Hart was wearing a bandana over his face, but Ashley’s grandmother recognized him.   Hart also identified himself to Mrs. Nalls.

Ashley Jones and Hart returned to discover that Deroy was still alive.   Hart hit him with various objects and stabbed him repeatedly, leaving the knife in his back.   Ashley poured charcoal lighter fluid on her grandfather and set him on fire.   Ashley’s sister, Mary, woke up and Ashley led her into the kitchen area.   She saw her grandfather on the floor of the den;  he was on fire but still alive, Mary said.   Hart forced Deroy Nalls to disclose where he kept his money, and after Mr. Nalls complied, Hart stabbed him in the throat.   Mrs. Nalls who survived after being stabbed, could not remember whether Hart or Ashley had stabbed her.

Ashley poured the charcoal fluid on Mrs. Nalls, then they set her on fire.   Ashley and Hart watched Mrs. Nalls burn, and Hart urged Ashley to pour more of the flammable liquid on her.   Mary Jones attempted to leave the kitchen, but Ashley Jones grabbed her sister and began hitting her.   Hart pointed the gun at the 10-year-old and said, “This is how you are going to die.”  (R. 686.)   Ashley said, “No, let me do it,” and stabbed her sister 14 times.   Hart and Ashley piled sheets, towels, and paper on the floor and set the pile on fire.

Hart and Ashley Jones took $300 that was hidden beneath Deroy and Mary Nalls’s mattress and drove away in the Nallses’ vehicle.   Mary Jones, who had pretended to be dead, helped her grandmother out of the house and contacted others for assistance.

The coroner determined that Deroy and Millie Nalls died from the stab and gunshot wounds they sustained.   He testified that both victims suffered greatly from their wounds before they died.   Mary Jones was treated for the numerous stab wounds Ashley inflicted.   Mary Nalls, who sustained burns to 35% of her body, was taken to a burn unit, where she was also treated for the gunshot and stab wounds she suffered.   She was hospitalized for weeks, received skin grafts, and underwent extensive rehabilitative therapy.

Hart and Ashley Jones were arrested the next morning in a hotel room.   The Nallses’ vehicle was in the parking lot of the hotel.   Hart and Jones gave voluntary statements describing their involvement in the murders and attempted murders of Jones’s family members.

Ashley Jones More News

A judge sentenced a 16-year-old girl to life in prison without parole Friday for murdering her grandfather and aunt and trying to kill her grandmother and sister.

Ashley Jones was convicted in March. She could not be sentenced to death because she was 14 at the time of the killings in 1999.

In a jail interview with the Birmingham News before the sentencing, Jones said:

“I’m not as bad a person as everybody thinks. I mean, they portrayed me as the devil or something, which is untrue.″

Prosecutors said Jones planned the attack with boyfriend Geramie Hart so they could runaway together using her grandfather’s car and $300 stolen during the crimes.

Hart is awaiting trial. Jones said she can’t explain what happened.

“I just say it happened. I don’t know the reason, for real,″ she said. “I just lost touch with reality. When all that was happening, it wasn’t me. I feel like something possessed me.″

Jones’ 78-year-old grandfather, Deroy C. Nalls, died after being shot, stabbed and set afire in the den of his home. Her aunt, Millie Nalls, 30, was shot and stabbed to death.

The girl’s grandmother, Mary Nalls, survived a gunshot, stabbing and being set ablaze. Jones’ 10-year-old sister, Mary, was beaten and stabbed about 15 times but lived.

Jones told the paper she got the idea for setting a fire to cover up evidence from a television show, “Melrose Place.″

Prosecutor Laura Poston compared Jones to mass murderer Ted Bundy.

“The devil just got in her,″ Jones’ grandmother said.

    Just finished watching the linked show (thank-you).
    Teen/kid killer stories are all bad, but this one takes the cake.
    Geramie carried 2 pistols, yet Ashley the sadist, chose to stab AND burn victims alive. . .

    The show doesn’t mention why Ashley and her 10yo sister were sent to live with the grandparents.

    According to another source (found in a YT comment), 13yo, Ashley previously injured her pregnant mother and stepfather with a knife.
    watch?v=_PPucp5pZHk

    If true, why wasn’t 13yo Ashley thrown in juvey for her 14th b-day. Instead, Ashley and her failed 10yo sister were removed from the parent’s home to live with the grandparents (who were pushing 80). Beyond disturbing. . .
