Girl, 14, dies in hospital five days after she was bludgeoned with a hammer ‘by her mother’s jilted boyfriend’


A 14-year-old girl has become the fourth victim to die following a brutal hammer attack in Louisiana.

Nashawana Riley, 14, succumbed to her injuries on Monday night, five days after the viscous assault on March 6, that also claimed the lives of her mother, younger brother, and her cousin.

The teenager was declared brain-dead on March 11 and died shortly afterwards, following her family’s decision to switch her life-support system off.

Natasha’s family members – mother, Kristina Riley, 32; brother, Ayden Riley, 10; and cousin, De’ryona Riley, 9, were all pronounced dead at the scene when their bodies were found bludgeoned inside the family home in Terrytown, near New Orleans.
