Marion County Superior Court
Judge Roy F. Jones

Prosecutor: David E. Cook, Brian Jennings

Defense: Timothy Bookwalter

Date of Murder: April 2, 1984

Victim(s): Debra A. Weaver W/F/21 (Former roommate of Davis' acquaintance)

Method of Murder: stabbing with 2 knives 113 times (11 before death)

Summary: Davis was acquainted with victim's former roommate, and visited her residence many times. He had told the roommate of his sexual interest in her. He went to her unoccupied residence, broke and entered through a back window, removed the light bulbs, and waited.

When the victim arrived, she called her brother and feared that an intruder may sill be inside. When she hung up, Davis attacked her, tied her hands, and gagged her. Davis took her to a highway overpass, where he raped, sodomized, and stabbed her to death.

The body was discovered and revealed chipped teeth, abrasions, multiple bruises on lips and gums, strangulation marks, seminal fluid in her vagina, and 113 stab wounds on the chest and abdomen. After initially claiming that he had only witnessed the crime, Davis confessed and took police to a creek where the knives were recovered. Serology from the semen showed Davis to be in the 1% of the general population with the same characteristics.
