Bond set for mother of Jhessye Shockley
09/07/2012

A $500,000 bond was set Friday for the mother of a missing Glendale child. 38-year-old Jerice Hunter’s daughter Jessye Shockley hasn’t been seen since last year.

Police believe Hunter murdered the then-five year old and disposed of her body several days before reporting her missing October 11. A 96-day search at a Phoenix-area landfill ended in late June without finding any remains

Hunter's attorney speaks about arrest in Jhessye Shockley case
Updated Saturday, Sep 8 at 9:00 AM

PHOENIX -- Jerice Hunter was back in court Thursday night.

Hunter’s attorney, Scott Maasen, was by her side.

She faces first-degree murder and child abuse charges.

Hunter’s accused of killing her daughter, in Glendale, last year.

Maasen was surprised by the arrest.

“I think she was doing fairly well considering the circumstances of having a SWAT team arrive at your house and being taken to jail and put through that process,” said Maasen.

It's been 11 months since Jhessye Shockley, 5, disappeared.

Since then Hunter was arrested for child abuse related to her daughter’s disappearance. But the charges were later dropped.

Maasen has requested to see the evidence against his client, but so far nothing.

Jerice Hunter Pleads Not Guilty to Abuse, Murder of 5-Year-Old Jhessye Shockley
 Sep. 17 2012 at 10:15 AM

Jerice Hunter's still maintaining her innocence in the in the death of her 5-year-old daughter, Jhessye Shockley.

Hunter pleaded not guilty this morning to charges of child abuse and the first-degree murder, and is still being held on $500,000 bond.

The details of how police believe Hunter killed Jhessye likely won't be released until trial, as she was arrested on a grand jury warrant almost two weeks ago.

 ::snipping2::

Hunter -- who's served prison time for child abuse before for abusing her other children -- had always been the prime suspect in Jhessye's death.

According to court documents previously obtained by New Times, Jhessye's 13-year-old sister told her foster parents that several weeks before the little girl was reported missing, Hunter called Jhessye a "ho" and dragged her into a bedroom, where they heard Jhessye screaming and crying.

She did this, police say, because she came home and found Jhessye watching TV with a boy from their neighborhood.

Jhessye's sister also told police about Hunter keeping Jhessye locked in the closet, according to the documents, as she'd give her sister water and let her out of the closet when Hunter was gone.

Jhessye's sister added that she was missing patches of hair, and the closet she was locked in smelled like "dead people."

Jhessye's sister also said that two days before Hunter reported Jhessye missing, she bought a bottle of bleach and cleaned her entire apartment, and scrubbed down a pair of shoes that she kept in the same closet Jhessye was locked in.

Prosecutors: Mother is responsible for missing girl's death


Posted: Sep 16, 2012 5:42 PM PDT Updated: Sep 21, 2012 5:43 PM PDT

PHOENIX -

It's hard to believe we've been covering the case of a missing Glendale girl for almost a year now.

5-year-old Jhessye Shockley was reported missing last October.

After months of investigating and pouring over evidence, prosecutors believe they can prove that her own mother is responsible for the child's death.

On Monday, Jerice Hunter is expected to respond to charges of murder and child abuse.

Hunter's arraignment is scheduled for 8:30 a.m.  Authorities say she was arrested on Sept. 6, based on the evidence they've been collecting for the past 11 months, but they've shared very few details about what they discovered.

Police report released on Jhessye Shockley's murder
Posted: Oct 09, 2012 1:51 PM MDT

 ::snipping2::

Up to this point, the public never really knew why police believed with certainty that Jhessye was killed and her remains at the Butterfield Landfill.

The crucial tip that lead them in that direction is reflected on page 925 of the report. There it is revealed that on Nov. 23, about six weeks after Jhessye was reported missing, a woman contacted investigators.

That woman said that seven to 15 days before Hunter reported her daughter missing, she gave Hunter a ride to Tempe. At the time, Hunter put a large, heavy suitcase in the woman's trunk. When they got to Tempe, Hunter put it in a Dumpster. Hunter even apologized to the woman for the smell of the suitcase. Police tested the trunk of that car and it tested positive for blood.

Updated: Oct 25, 2012 2:02 PM MDT

GLENDALE, AZ (CBS5) - It was a public memorial that grew over the past year in Glendale, but the stuffed animals and candles for missing 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley have now been removed from the intersection of 45th Avenue and Glendale.

City officials said the items were collected by their city employees Wednesday over concerns of blight at the spot. The items are being stored by police until Jhessye's family can pick them up.

Our View: Trying to find a trace of justice in Jhessye’s disappearance
Thu, Oct 25 2012 9:45 AM

 ::snipping2::

We know more today than a year ago. Details emerged from 1,400 pages of investigation files that recently were made public.

The children in the home reported to adults that Jhessye was kept in a closet and given food different from that given the other kids.

Witnesses reported seeing Hunter disposed of a large, foul-smelling suitcase days before she called police.

Relatives suspected abuse, noticing burn marks and bruises on Jhessye.

The answers we seek might not bring us comfort, but we can only hope they are answers that might bring some justice to this child’s tragic life.

Jerice Hunter sentenced to life in prison in Jhessye Shockley's murder
Matthew Casey, The Republic | azcentral.com Published 2:54 p.m. MT July 17, 2015 | Updated 8:30 p.m. MT July 17, 2015

Jhessye Shockley's body has not been found.

Jerice Hunter, the Glendale mother convicted of killing her 5-year-old daughter, Jhessye Shockley, has been sentenced to life in prison. The girl's body has never been found, but police believe her body was stuffed in a suitcase and left in a Tempe garbage bin.

The sentencing marks the conclusion of a case that began in October 2011, when Hunter told police that Shockley had disappeared from her Glendale apartment. She did not react when Judge Rosa Mroz read the sentence Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court.

During the trial, prosecutors had portrayed Hunter as a liar and manipulator who, after serving a prison sentence in California, used law enforcement to take Jhessye from loving relatives. They argued that Hunter never developed a maternal bond with the girl described by her teacher as "bubbly" and an "emerging leader."

While prosecutors Jeannette Gallagher and Blaine Gadow said it could not be determined how or when Hunter killed Jhessye, they told jurors she put the girl's body in a suitcase and then conned a neighbor into driving her to Tempe so she could sell items Hunter had claimed were inside.

The state won convictions of child abuse and first-degree murder against Hunter despite the lack of an eyewitness to Jhessye's killing or the discovery of the girl's body.

Prosecutors presented jurors with evidence that contradicted defense attorney Candice Shoemaker's portrayal of Hunter as a desperate mother whose years of incarceration while awaiting trial had prevented her from working on what was most important: finding Jhessye.

Hunter's daughter and Hunter's ex-lover testified about Hunter's corporal punishment of Jhessye. The daughter lashed out from the witness stand at the people she believed tore her family apart—police, prosecutors and a state agency that separated her from her siblings—but also described Jhessye being forced by Hunter to live in a closet.

The ex-lover told the court about hearing Hunter beat the child over spilled Play Doh.

The state appeared to be veering into minutiae when it painstakingly laid out Hunter's numerous excuses for Jhessye missing more than two weeks of kindergarten before the girl's disappearance. But those became key details when one of Hunter's relatives testified that Hunter had asked him to drive Jhessye to school on one of the days Hunter told school officials that the girl would be absent from school because of ringworm and pink eye.

Hunter's request became more significant when the relative told jurors that the girl he drove to school wasn't the one whose picture flashed across television screens as part of a missing-person search that went national.

The defense called just two witnesses and took just one day to present Hunter's case.

The first witness struggled to recall details and was seen as ineffective.

The second, a grandmother, presented herself as having a photographic memory. The woman described in detail having seen a girl she identified as Jhessye just hours before Hunter reported the girl missing.

The woman testified that she went outside her apartment, near 45th and Glendale avenues, to smoke a cigarette, saw Jhessye and tried to help her. But the girl was upset, had been crying and fled toward the intersection where the woman told jurors she saw her get into the passenger seat of a dark sedan that sped away, the witness said.


Hunter's family speaks on sentencing

While the woman's testimony validated Hunter's story that she'd discovered Jhessye missing after returning from an errand on Oct. 11, 2011, it didn't contradict Jhessye's sister's statements about seeing Jhessye bruised, unable to walk and losing her hair while locked in her mother's closet.

Nor was the defense able to explain the large blood stain detectives discovered underneath the closet's carpet, a stain forensic examiners determined was likely Jhessye's blood.

The jury of seven men and five women reached the guilty verdicts in late April. Hunter has maintained her innocence since Glendale police identified her as a suspect about a month after Jhessye disappeared.

The jury also decided Hunter had committed fraud against the community when she pleaded for help in bringing her daughter home.
