A suspect has been arrested in the murder of a mother who was shot and killed while visiting her son’s grave on his birthday.
On March 22, Yolanda N’Gaojia went to go visit her son Amir Tajai-Kineh N’Gaojia‘s grave located at the Calvary Baptist Church Garden of Memories Cemetery in Killeen, Texas. While she was there, the grieving mother was fatally shot on what would have been Amir’s 22nd birthday. The shooting happened at around 5 p.m. that day, according to officers from the Kileen Police Department.
N’Gaojia “succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace Gregory Johnson at 6:56 p.m. He ordered an autopsy to be performed at the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas,” reads a statement from the police.
There was also one other victim who was shot; they sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were released at the scene. “The case was reviewed by the Bell County District Attorney’s Office and a complaint was returned charging Christian Lamar Weston with Murder,” the statement from police continued.
Seventeen-year-old Weston is being held without bond, and he’s being charged on an unrelated weapon charge.
