Mother murders her children at a gas station
Last Update: 6:30 am
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – A 22-year-old Georgia woman is facing murder charges for allegedly stabbing her two young children to death in a convenience store bathroom.
An investigator says a worker at a Food Mart in Augusta called 911 yesterday after hearing a scream while Michelle Hawes was in the bathroom with the boy and the girl. Sheriff’s deputies knocked down the door and found Hawes on the floor, holding a steak knife and covered in blood.
The one-year-old boy and three-year-old girl were pronounced dead at the hospital.
Their mother is behind bars, charged with two counts of murder.
Store clerk Amanda Thomas says Hawes was a regular customer. She says she heard the children crying in the rest room, and when things, quote, “didn’t sound right,” she tried to get in and couldn’t.

Children stabbed to death
22-year-old mother charged

Amanda Thomas, the assistant manager of the Patee gas station at 2260 Lumpkin Road, sensed that something was wrong when Jeannette Michelle Hawes, a regular customer, walked into the store Thursday afternoon with her 1-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter.
Two children were found stabbed in the chest in a restroom at the former Texaco station at the corner of Lumpkin and Richmond Hill roads Thursday.
“She looked very distraught,” Ms. Thomas said. “I asked her if she was OK.”
Ms. Thomas said she saw Ms. Hawes take the children into the bathroom, and moments later “I heard the kids cry. Then heard a different sound — very undescribable,” she said.
After Ms. Thomas and three customers tried to unlock the bathroom door, she said, she called 911.
Upon arrival at the store, Richmond County deputies pried open the locked door with a screwdriver and found Ms. Hawes lying on the floor with her two children.
The mother, who Ms. Thomas said was an aspiring model, still had a black steak knife in her possession. The weapon was covered with blood, police said.
Ms. Hawes, 22, was charged Thursday with two counts of murder and possession of a knife during the commission of a crime.
Shakayla Hawes, 3, and Jordon Hawes, 1, were pronounced dead at Medical College of Georgia Hospital at 3:30 p.m. by Richmond County Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen.
Both children died of multiple stab wounds to the chest, Deputy Bowen said.
“You think you’ve seen the worst, but sometimes you still see something that tops it,” he said. “It’s probably one of the hardest cases I’ve ever worked.”
Wanda Barton, who lives next to the food mart in the Fairway Village Apartments, said she rushed to the scene in time to see Ms. Hawes being taken away by police.
“She wasn’t crying or showing any emotion,” Ms. Barton said.
Shelia Langston, who also lives in the apartments, said she just kept thinking of her own 7-year-old child.
“It don’t make sense,” Ms. Langston said.

Denise and I moved to St. Petersburg, FL from Augusta, GA. the side of town this gas station is on is not what I would call the best. There’s a lot of crimes and drug activity over on the south side, and before Denise and I mleft Augusta, it seemed to get worse.
I would hope that any jury who is going to sit on this case will not be like the Susan smith case 13 years ago and find her mentally incompitent.
