FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Investigators piecing together why and where a 5-year-old North Carolina girl was killed plan to add new charges on top of one for selling the girl for sexual slavery.

Fayetteville police planned a briefing Wednesday to discuss the case and said new charges are pending in the death of Shaniya Davis.

Authorities are trying to decide where the girl was killed and if the case will be prosecuted in Cumberland or neighboring Lee County.

Her mother reported the child missing from her Cumberland County home last week. Antoinette Davis is charged with human trafficking and child abuse involving prostitution.

Mario McNeill was accused of kidnapping Shaniya after surveillance footage from a Lee County hotel showed him carrying the girl.
