ST. GEORGE — The two victims in a double homicide in Washington City on Tuesday have been identified as the parents of the suspect in the case, according to the police report of the shooting deaths. Authorities say the suspect, 28-year-old Mia Bailey, admitted to killing her parents and attempting to kill her brother and expressed no remorse for doing so.

The parents, Joseph and Gail Bailey, were found dead when Washington City Police responded to reports of shots fired at the home the two shared with one of their sons and his wife, according to the police report.

Bailey surrendered Wednesday morning after an overnight search that stretched throughout the area. She is being held at Purgatory Correctional Facility in Hurricane pending a preliminary hearing.

Bailey is accused of killing her parents at their home on East Chinook Drive in the Washington Fields neighborhood of Washington City on Tuesday evening. She also attempted to shoot her brother, who was living at the house with his wife, the report states.

Bailey had not been living at the home.

In addition to a third-degree felony for discharging a weapon, she now faces 10 first-degree felonies: three counts of aggravated murder, one count of aggravated burglary, and six counts of felony discharge of a weapon.

Police say Bailey admitted to killing her parents and attempting to kill her brother.

“Mia further stated that she did not have remorse for her actions and that she would not change what she had done,” the police report states. “Mia stated, ‘I would do it again. I hate them.’”

Bailey’s brother, Cory Bailey, sought a protective order against Mia Bailey last July, according to 5th District Court documents. Three other minor children are listed as co-plaintiffs in the order.

Judge John Walton granted a temporary protective order on July 18.

The order came a month after Bailey, who is transitioning from male to female, was granted by the court a legal gender and name change from Collin Bailey.

On Oct. 16, the court said both parties agreed to have the protective order dismissed. Walton granted the dismissal without prejudice, allowing the order to be refiled, if needed, later.

The police report details both what officers found upon their arrival and Bailey’s own description of what she said were her actions.

On Tuesday, Bailey arrived at the residence in her Kia Soul vehicle, and that arrival was seen on a neighbor’s security camera.

Bailey reportedly told police she entered the house and “immediately began shooting at her mother.” Police said they found multiple spent casings from a 9mm handgun in the front room next to the mother, who was lying face down with no signs of life.

Police said Bailey described her father approaching her after he heard the shots. Bailey told police she shot her father in the head, and he “immediately dropped to the ground.”

Bailey said she then went downstairs to the basement of the home, seeking her brother Cory to find a locked door. Bailey said she fired one round in the direction of her brother through the door. Bailey said she then went back upstairs.

She later told police that her brother was not her main target, but “she would not have been sad had the gunshot killed him.”

Police said the brother was not hit, but a bullethole was found in the door.

Cory Bailey told police that he and his wife had locked the door after hearing the gunshots and commotion upstairs. They then fled out a downstairs window to a neighbor’s house.

After she went upstairs, Mia Bailey reportedly told police, she saw her father lying on the ground and shot him one more time in the head to “make sure he was dead.” She said she then heard her mother making noises and shot her one more time in the head.

A preliminary hearing has not yet been scheduled.

Transgender criminals need to have their own category for crime statistics database. Women's crime stats get skewed when a male identifying as a female commits a crime and then their crime gets added to the female category making it look like there is suddenly a spike in female homicides. When it's men committing the heinous crimes NOT WOMEN. (emphasis mine)

PURGATORY, Utah (KUTV) — Mia Bailey, who is accused of shooting her parents to death in their Washington City, Utah, home, reportedly telling police she would "do it again," made her first appearance before a judge in the double-murder case.

Bailey is charged with two counts of first-degree aggravated murder for the June 18 deaths of her parents, Joseph and Gail Bailey, and first-degree felony attempted aggravated murder for allegedly trying to shoot her brother through a door at the family's home.

She's also charged with multiple first-degree felony counts of felony discharge of a firearm resulting in serious bodily injury.

Bailey appeared before Judge Keith Barnes in Fifth District Court on Wednesday morning remotely from Purgatory Correctional Facility in Washington County.

Barnes asked Bailey if she was able to afford an attorney, and asked her if she had any assets she could sell to come up with the approximate $5,000 needed to retain one. Based on the list of assets provided by Bailey, the judge determined she wasn't able to afford an attorney and appointed a public defender.

Attorney Ryan Stout, who was present in the courtroom, advised Bailey not to answer any questions unless directly asked by the judge.

A role call hearing was scheduled for July 10.
