Police to add new charges in slain NC girl’s case

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Body

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.

Ex-Easley operative at federal courthouse in NC

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – A political operative who guided former Gov. Mike Easley’s two campaigns for North Carolina’s top office testified before a federal grand jury that’s hearing more about the Democratic governor.

Jay Reiff arrived with attorney Michael Weisel shortly before 9 a.m. and left before noon. Weisel says his client answered all the questions from the jury fully and completely. He would not go into detail on what questions Reiff was asked.

The State Board of Elections tried to subpoena Reiff for an investigative hearing last month, but Chairman Larry Leake said the state’s subpoena couldn’t compel him to testify because he was working outside of North Carolina at the time.

Weisel says his client had several interviews with board staff and has made himself available to be called as a witness.

Tammy Creasy did not return our calls.

The two are expected to appear in federal court on December 1st.
