Hall claimed she woke just before 9 a.m. Sunday to find the girl missing from their upstairs unit.

According to Gwinnett County police, investigators began to suspect foul play due to inconsistencies in the women’s statements. After gathering evidence, officers arrested Hall and Owens, and say that Hall told them where they could find her daughter’s body.

At a hearing last week, both women learned they would not be granted bond. Both requested a public defender.

A motive in the case has not been released.

Two other children living in Hall and Owens’ home, a 6-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, have been placed in state custody.
