Woman to stand trial for impeding murder investigation

(KNZA)--A Hiawatha woman, accused of impeding a  2013 Brown County child murder investigation, will stand trial.

34-year-old Janelle Hall ( also known as Janelle King) was bound over Wednesday to Brown County District Court on a felony count of interference with law enforcement after waiving her preliminary hearing.

Arraignment was scheduled for October 22. 

The charge stems from the investigation into the beating death of 4-year-old Mekhi Boone in March 2013.

According to the criminal complaint, Hall is alleged to have provided false information concerning the whereabouts of Janice Summerford.

Summerford was the live-in girlfriend of the child’s father, Lee Davis IV.

Davis was sentenced in June 2013 to nearly 20 years in prison on charges of second-degree murder and felony child abuse.

Summerford was sentenced in September 2014 to a total of 124 months in prison on charges of second-degree murder, felony child abuse and interference with a law enforcement officer.
