Woman charged with murder for truck stop shooting


MCCALLA, Ala. (WIAT) — A Pickens County mother is charged with murder after a Monday night shooting in Tuscaloosa County.

Investigators say she shot her son’s longtime boyfriend.

Anita Hill met her son and his boyfriend, Jamie Johnson, at a Tuscaloosa County truck stop.

Investigators are not sure how or why things escalated, but after about 20 minutes, Hill allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Johnson in the lower back.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Investigators tell CBS42 Hill wanted to discuss her son’s well-being in the relationship. Witness reports indicate he may have been in an abusive relationship.
