He was arrested again in January 2011 after his 5-month-old daughter Keris Davis died of multiple head injuries from blunt force trauma and shaking.
At the time of Davis’ second arrest, Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins said sentencing laws have stiffened since Davis’ previous homicide by child abuse conviction.
“Now, someone who is convicted of this crime or pleads guilty to this particular crime must pay 85 percent and then they become eligible for parole,” Wilkins said.
If the current sentencing laws had existed when Davis was first convicted, he would have been in prison through at least 2012.

Though Davis was sentenced to 20 years in his first daughter’s murder, he only served 11 of them. He is not eligible for parole this time and will be in prison for the rest of his life.
One has to wonder if any attempt to rehabilitate this monster was made or if he was just a paycheck for the state. Whatever the case, death is too good for him and the fact that he will die in a cage is a form of justice.
