Today Willie Davis, 20, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for one count each of Second Degree Murder with a Firearm and Robbery with a Firearm.
On June 17, 2017, the 19-year-old victim was attempting to trade a firearm to Davis. The victim and defendant were high school classmates. The victim was lured to a vacant apartment in South Fort Myers. They walked up a flight of stairs to a landing in front of the apartment and things turned deadly. The teenager was shot numerous times with an AK-47 assault rifle. He was transported to the hospital and died a short time later.
The diligent work of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and follow-through with the physical evidence, including DNA evidence, led to the defendant’s arrest almost a year after the homicide.
The case and plea agreement were handled by Assistant State Attorney Lanna Belohlavek of the Homicide Unit and Assistant State Attorney Bianca Bentley.
