The girl was found unresponsive in her crib in the Raymonia Apartments and later was transferred to Memorial Hospital in Savannah where brain injuries were discovered.

Davis was the boyfriend of the girl's mother, Morissha McLain, and was keeping the child was she was at work. 

Assistant District Attorney Tripp Fitzner says five medical experts testified that the girl's injuries were consistent with being thrown against a hard surface such as a wall or floor.

Superior Court Judge Bobby Reeves sentenced Davis to life in prison for felony murder and 20 years to be served concurrently for cruelty to children.
