Suspect to Return

Daunteril Maurice Hall, a suspect in the murder of a 24-year-old Sterling woman, has waived extradition and will be moved from Stark County, Ohio, to Loudoun County as early as Friday.

“We have 10 days,” said Kraig Troxell, the Sheriff’s Office spokesman. “He will mostly likely be brought back to Loudoun by Friday.”

Hall, 28, of Sterling, was arrested last Friday in Canton, Ohio, where he attended school. He was wanted on an outstanding warrants for felony malicious wounding and obstruction of justice, stemming from an incident on May 23, 2004, when he allegedly struck a 29-year-old Leesburg woman once with his fist and several times with a stick in Sterling, because she refused to give him a ride.

Authorities conducted a national search for Hall after he became a suspect in the murder of Sherine Williams. Troxell said a decision on whether to charge Hall with Williams’ murder will be made upon his return. Officials have not released the cause of her death.

Williams was found on Jan. 23 in her two-bedroom apartment at the Reserve at Town Center. Troxell said she knew Hall, but he was not sure to what extent. Her boyfriend was serving time in a federal prison.

Williams, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, was buried last Saturday, three days before she would have turned 25.

She was a 1999 Loudoun Valley High School graduate and worked for three years as a mortgage loan officer at Bank of America.

Law enforcement authorities also arrested Megan Helm, 18, of Herndon, in Ohio. They charged her with felony larceny of an automobile, which belonged to her parents. The Sheriff’s Office issued an advisory prior to the arrests, warning that Helm might be with Hall and in danger. She was not harmed. She waived extradition three days before Hall and returned to Fairfax County, officials said.
