Jury: NC man should get death for killing child

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — Jurors say a man convicted of killing a 5-year-old Fayetteville girl in 2009 should die for the crime.

The Cumberland County jury deliberated less than 40 minutes Wednesday before deciding that Mario McNeill should get the death sentence for the death of Shaniya Davis. Shaniya’s body was found in a kudzu patch six days after her mother reported her missing.

A medical examiner said the autopsy showed Shaniya was suffocated and had injuries consistent with sexual assault.

The jury last week convicted the 32-year-old McNeill of several charges, including first-degree murder and sexual offense of a child.

After presenting no evidence in his defense at trial, McNeill said Tuesday he wanted no one to testify on his behalf before sentencing. He ordered his attorneys not to give closing arguments.
