Belleville, Ill. – A grand jury in the Metro East has indicted Tiffany Hall, the East St. Louis woman accused of killing Jamella Tunstall and cutting the fetus from her womb.

The grand jury charged Hall with first degree murder and intentional homicide of an unborn child.

Hall is also suspected of killing Tunstall's three children, ages 7, 2, and 1 and stuffing their bodies into a washer and dryer.

But St. Clair County State's Attorney Robert Haida said that case is separate, and charges will not be filed until the forensic investigation is complete.

"There will be action that we will be able to take based upon what I've seen and what I've heard," Haida said. "But at this time we're withholding a decision on that case until we have further information."

Hall is being held on $5 million bond.

She could face the death penalty on the first degree murder charge. Haida said a decision on whether to seek capital punishment could come before the end of the year.
