Court affirms life sentence in Jackson shooting
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from a man convicted for a fatal shooting at a family gathering on Christmas Day 2008 in Jackson.
Thursday’s decision lets stand state Court of Appeals’ upholding of Saheed Davis‘ conviction last year.
Davis was convicted in the 2011 death of Zedrick Warner.
Jackson police investigators say Davis shot the 39-year-old Warner, who was his girlfriend’s brother-in-law, outside a home where relatives had gathered for the holiday.
Davis was among the most wanted fugitives on a list prepared by a federal gang task force. He was captured at a Dallas hotel more than nine months after the shooting in Jackson.
