Hall Charged with Capital Murder

Hall Charged with Capital Murder

Grand jury indicts Daunteril Hall in the murder of Sherine Williams.

Daunteril Hall, 28, of Sterling, could face the death penalty if convicted of killing a 24-year-old Sterling woman.

A grand jury indicted Hall on Monday, May 9, charging him with capital murder, robbery and two counts of use of a firearm during the commission of a felony in the January murder. Hall evaded charges for nearly four months in the slaying of Sherine Williams, 24, of Sterling.

Williams' body was found in her bathroom after family members forced entry into her Reserve Falls Terrace apartment.

Williams, a native of Trinidad and Tobago, was a 1999 Loudoun Valley High School graduate. She worked three years as a mortgage loan officer at Bank of America and wanted to become a famous model. She was described by people who knew her as quiet-spoken around people she did not know well and outgoing with friends and family.

HALL HAS BEEN incarcerated since his arrest in Canton, Ohio, on unrelated charges involving the beating of a 29-year-old Leesburg woman. A Canton policeman recognized Hall, who attended elementary school in the Ohio town, as he was walking along Logan Street in Canton, five days after Williams died. A federal warrant had been issued for his arrest for the beating.

Hall was charged with the felonious aggravated malicious wounding of the Leesburg woman. Hall was accused of using his fist and a stick to beat the woman in Sterling on May 23, 2004. The case is scheduled for trial in August.

Commonwealth's Attorney James Plowman had been holding off on the charges stemming from Williams' alleged murder, because he said Hall was off the street.
