Missing girl found dead killed two days before reported missing

By Alyson Shields Reporter

A girl with autism missing in Gwinnett County earlier this week who was later found dead was reportedly killed two days before she was reported missing.

CBS46 obtained the arrest warrants in the case. They report Amari Nicole Hall was hit in the head and killed by her mother's partner, Celeste Owens, in Gwinnett County.

The child's mother, Brittany Hall, reportedly made a false report to 911 that Amari Hall had gone missing from the hotel on Jimmy Carter Boulevard they were staying in. 

Both Owens and Hall face charges in the case. 

Amari Hall was later found dead in a wooded area in Dekalb County. CBS46 reports her body was placed in plastic bags and dumped.
