FAYETTEVILLE — The father of a dead North Carolina girl isn’t second-guessing his decision to let 5-year-old Shaniya Davis live with the mother accused of prostituting her.

Bradley Lockhart said on NBC’s “Today” show Tuesday that he last saw Shaniya in early October as he left for an out-of-state work assignment. The girl moved in with 25-year-old Antoinette
Davis about a week later.

Lockhart says he regrets how the decision turned out, but thought he was making the right choice at the time. He says he doesn’t think he missed any signs that Shaniya would be at risk.

Davis was charged last week with human trafficking and child abuse by prostitution of her daughter.

Mario McNeill is charged with murder, rape and kidnapping.

Overdose killed patient released from NC hospital

RALEIGH — An autopsy shows a North Carolina man just discharged from a state psychiatric hospital died from a massive overdose of a painkiller given to him by the facility.

The News & Observer reported Tuesday that 40-year-old Jeffery Scott Swaim died in July of acute Fentanyl poisoning.

The synthetic opiate was the active ingredient in the pain patch Swaim was prescribed at Cherry Hospital in Goldsboro. The newspaper said the drug has been linked to hundreds of overdose deaths nationally and is often abused by those seeking a high.

Doctors at a Wilmington hospital found one of the pain patches in Swaim’s mouth.

He was admitted to the psychiatric hospital almost two weeks earlier seeking treatment for alcohol abuse and suicidal thoughts.
