Criminal charges being prepared for mother of little girl found in duffel bag

The mother of the little girl whose body was found in a duffle bag in Hacienda Heights has been extradited to California for questioning.

Investigators say they're preparing a criminal case against 28-year-old Taquesta Graham, the mother of Trinity Love Jones.


She was booked at the Norwalk Sheriff's station on Thursday for an unrelated warrant and was interviewed by detectives regarding her daughter's death.

Her boyfriend, Emiel Lamar, was charged on Tuesday with Trinity's death.

On March 5, 2019, the 9-year-old's body was found stuffed into a duffel bag and dumped near a trail in Hacienda Heights.
