Three Arrested and Charged With Capital Murder for Brutal Killing of 18-Year-old Girl

JACKSON, Miss. — Three people have been arrested and charged with capital murder after allegedly dumping the body of a teenage girl on the side of the road after shooting, kidnapping and raping her. 

The body of an 18-year-old female was discovered on the side of the road on February 15. According to police she had been shot multiple times. The remains were not identified until March 24 when detectives were notified by the coroner’s office that the girl was Amya Carey

A family member told detectives that Kaymia Blackmon, 19, and her boyfriend, Dewitt Anderson, 34, had picked Amya up on February 15.

According to Jackson Police Department Deputy Chief Deric Hearn, the three went to several locations that night. At some point Blackmon, Anderson, and Anderson’s brother, Cedric Banks, all tried to have sex with Carey. Carey refused and got into a fight with Blackmon. Anderson then picked up a gun and shot Carey, Hearn said. 

The severely wounded teen was then put in a car and raped by one of the suspects while they drove, according to Hearn.

Carey was shot two more times before she was dumped on the side of the road where police later found her body. Hearn said the detectives did not know if the teen was dead or alive when she was raped in the vehicle. 

“She was severely wounded. They placed her in a car and as they were driving to Forest Avenue, where they dumped the body, they had sex with her in the car,” Hearn said.

All three suspects have been charged with capital murder and are being held without bond.
