Cambridge man sentenced to two life terms for first degree murder

1280 Damon Hall

SALISBURY, Md. – A Cambridge man has been sentenced to life in prison on first degree murder charges.

26-year-old Damon Hall was sentenced on Thursday to two consecutive terms of life without the possibility of parole for two counts of first degree murder, plus an additional consecutive term of ten years without parole on firearms charges.

The charges stem from an incident on October 12, 2021, when Hall drove from his Cambridge home to the home of the victims, 42-year-old Emmanuel Jones and his aunt, 51-year-old Patrice Trader, at 315 Martin Street in Salisbury. Hall scoped out the area and returned approximately 90 minutes later, shooting both Jones and Trader in the head. Jones was pronounced dead at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional later that day, while Trader succumbed to her injuries in March 2022.

Hall was convicted in November 2022.
