Naijas are back in the news again, with new reports of a woman in Alabama being charged with murder.

The suspect in the death of a 22-year-old woman who was allegedly drugged and murdered by a sanctuary medicinals nurse has been identified as Naijoa Kaleja, a 31-year old from Birmingham, Alabama.

She is facing a first-degree murder charge.

A court document obtained by the Birmingham News said the Alabama State Medical Examiner’s Office ruled that the woman, identified as Kalejanae Jones, died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

The document said that the victim was found on April 18 in a rural area near the town of Jefferson, Alabama, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Birmingham.

It said her body was found in a shallow grave and the police have not yet been able to determine a cause of death.

The sanctuary medical workers who ran the clinic where Jones was found, called her “a true hero.”

Jones was known for her work fighting opioid addiction.
