Makaylah Jolley was denied bond today at her initial appearance at which she was informed of her formal charge of capital murder in the blunt force trauma death of her daughter, Khalysie Jolley. Witnesses told police the child was slammed to the ground repeatedly before Jolley ran off into the woods to escape officers. She was apprehended shortly afterward.
Khalysie died the next day and Jolley’s attempted murder charge was upgraded. The case was moved up to Rankin County Circuit Court.
