Richmond County authorities are looking for the teenage son of a woman whose abusive ex-boyfriend was killed over the weekend.
Ricardo Daggett, 19, is wanted for murder in the death of 46-year-old Ahmed Jabari Hill, who was fatally shot around noon on Sunday.
Investigators have already charged Daggett’s mother, 40-year-old Angel Burley, who had filed domestic violence charges against Hill in the past. On Tuesday, authorities also charged 38-year-old Stephanie Overton with murder for allegedly aiding the homicide.
According to authorities, Burley and Hill had been in a domestic dispute at Hill’s home on Tullocks Hill Drive. Overton drove the teen suspect over to the home, where Burley met them both outside. Burley and Overton then entered the home through the front door and confronted Hill.
Daggett allegedly entered the residence through a back door with a 12-gauge shot gun and fired at Hill. He was rushed to Augusta University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:57 p.m. Sunday.
Authorities say there was communication with all three suspects about Daggett intending to harm Hill, leading to the murder charges against all three.
The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office has not released a wanted poster for Daggett, but a warrant charging him with murder has been obtained.
As The Augusta Press has previously reported, Hill was arrested in August 2021 for domestic violence and child cruelty for allegedly dragging Burley from a car in front of her 4-year-old daughter. Those charges remained pending at the time of Sunday’s murder with very little action over the last year in court.

Sounds to me like the kid was tired of seeing his mother, and the family, being slapped around by this no-good….oh, excuse me, this ALLEGEDLY no-good man.
Part of me hopes they never find the kid. The other part understands that what he did was against the law. But isn’t it ironic that if the kid had shot the no-good man WHILE he was beating his mom & family , then the kid could’ve claimed self-defense. I’m no Perry Mason, but am I wrong on that?
Leave the kid alone. He did that family a favor.
she never should have gotten her son involved, should have shot him herself , claimed self defense. domestic violence charges pending after a year wth wrong with this system
In most cases, no one grieves more at the death of an abuser than the victim. Call it the Stockholm syndrome or whatever psychological excuse one can muster. The victim is usually far to emotionally attached to the abuser to wish him any harm. It’s a common malady, sad but real.
