The shooting death at the home of a Mississippi high school math teacher and mother already appeared to be a particularly grisly case as soon as the victim’s 14-year-old daughter was identified as the suspect and charged as an adult with murder. But a Rankin County Sheriff’s Office investigator has since testified that Carly Gregg shot 40-year-old Ashley Smylie twice in the face, invited a friend over to show off the victim’s body by claiming there was an “emergency,” played with her dogs in the meanwhile, and then told that friend there were “two for the head, one for the chest” waiting for Gregg’s stepfather, too.

The preliminary hearing before Rankin County Judge David Morrow was posted online in full by Jackson Jambalaya — and the details from the proceeding were startling.

Investigator Zachary Cotton took the stand and spoke about how Ashley Smylie, a Northwest Rankin High School teacher once honored as “Teacher of the Month,” went her daughter’s room after 4 p.m. on March 19 and “took some items” out of the bedroom before Gregg opened fire three times, shooting her mother twice in the face and once in the chin.
