Court records suggest Richmond girl was murdered last month

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

New evidence suggests 20-year-old Samantha Myers was killed weeks before her body was found in a Southside ravine Monday morning.

Myers' stepsister has been charged with first-degree murder and on Friday, Richmond police arrested the suspect's daughter.

40-year-old Yvette Hairston was arrested Wednesday after police say, she confessed to killing Samantha after an argument. Hairston's daughter, 21-year-old Selena, now faces a 'conspiracy to commit murder' charge.

According to Selena Hairston's online court records, the offense date was February 28, suggesting the alleged murder happened last month.

"They've probably known for a month now because my kids haven't seen Samantha in about three, four weeks," said neighbor Christina Taylor.

Taylor's daughters played with Samantha, better known as "Sammy G," just as it appears tattooed on her forearm.

"She was an innocent person and basically a good friend," said Taylor's daughter, 11-year-old Cassidy Clements.

Taylor's other daughter, 15-year-old Chyann Taylor said they would often hang out with the 20-year-old. Chyann says, Sammy would often confide in her about problems she had with the Hairstons.

"They always would argue and say, 'I hate you' and 'I'm gonna hurt you,'" said Cassidy Clements.

Meanwhile, the case continues to build for a murdered girl described by those who knew her as "sweet."

"She was very respectful," said Christina Taylor. "She was well-mannered, nice. It's just heartbreaking."

NBC12 is told that another arrest could be forthcoming. We'll continue to update you on-air and online.
