Arrests made in killing of mom during Houston attempted carjacking

HOUSTON, Texas – Two men were arrested and charged with capital murder in the killing of a 30-year-old woman Monday night in Houston’s Alief area.

Houston police said Jermia Guillory, 20, and D’Marquis Boone, 24, are responsible for murdering Kiesha Price, 30, at a southwest Houston gas station Monday night. Robbery is the motive behind the killing.

During a Friday news conference, Police Chief Art Acevedo praised the hard work by Houston police investigators, tactical unit, homicide, and Westside patrol to crack the case.

“We’re very confident in the case we built and charges we filed and we’re confident we’ll get convictions,” said Chief Acevedo.

Investigators detailed how the two suspects were apparently trying to steal stuff from the car, but did not know that Price was still inside.

“We believe they went into the car with just the intention of possibly getting what they could, we believe Ms. Price kind of surprised them, it just went back from there,” said Homicide Detective David Stark.

Police say the men then took off. Then, sometime Tuesday morning, police believe Guillory, Boone, and a third suspect robbed another man and stole his Toyota Rav 4.

The suspects were then spotted at a pawn shop in the afternoon and that evening, investigators spotted the Rav 4 at an HEB parking lot near Beechnut where they tried to corner the suspects.

“We decided these guys were from this area, probably staying in this area, so we’re going to saturate with unmarked cars and conduct surveillance,” said Pat Chaffin, a member of the HPD tactical team.

The men were able to get away on Tuesday, but Wednesday morning, HPD spotted the suspects walking around in the same area.

Police gave chase and eventually all three suspects were caught. They were charged with the robbery of the driver of the Rav 4 on Wednesday.

Guillory and Boone were charged Thursday with capital murder. They are being held without bonds.

Meanwhile, Price’s family was relieved to learn of the arrests Thursday night.
