West Virginia Man Sentenced for Role in Murder of Ohio Woman

West Virginia

A Clarksburg man was sentenced to prison for his role in the 2017 murder of an Ohio woman.

Warren Hall was sentenced to 28 years in prison by Judge James Matish Tuesdsay for his role in the murder of Keyairy Wilson in Clarksburg in March 2017.

Hall, along with Elizabeth Jenkins and Daniel Amsler, planned to rob Wilson, according to court documents, and during the robbery, Jenkins shot Wilson with a pistol, killing her. The trio, then, transported Wilson’s body to Barbour County to dispose of it, police said.

In March, Hall, who was originally charged with murder in the case, pleaded guilty to first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery and agreed to testify against Amsler and Jenkins, as part of his plea deal. 

During Amsler’s trial, Hall went into detail for the jury about the events that took place on the day Wilson was killed. He said after Jenkins shot Wilson, she wouldn’t allow him or Amsler to leave. He said he recalled Wilson asking to be taken to the hospital because she had family and children. Eventually, though, Hall left and went home. When he returned to the house later in the evening to find out what happened and to get high, he said he saw a mop bucket in the kitchen and was told that Jenkins stabbed Wilson 12 to 13 times.

Hall was sentenced to 28 years in prison on the first-degree robbery charge and was sentenced to one to five years in prison on the conspiracy to commit robbery charge, and those sentences will run concurrently, according to the Harrison County Prosecutor’s Office.

In July, a jury found Amsler guilty of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery after a four-day trial. He was sentenced to life in prison for murder Monday. In March, Jenkins was found guilty of murder and conspiracy to commit robbery and was sentenced to life without parole.
