Davis jury gets the case


Niagara Gazette — "But for that prolonged struggle (with Davis), Antoine would not have died that day," Seaman said. "Mr. Dabney says. β€œIt was just his time?' and it just happened to be the day that someone broke down his door, broke his jaw, broke his nose, and engaged in a prolonged struggle. It was just a coincidence that that was (also) his day (to die)."

Dabney told the jury that Davis, who did not take the stand to testify, insists he was not at Bradberry's apartment on the night and early morning of the murder.

"It's my client's position that he was not there," Dabney said. "I submit to you, he was not there."

But Seaman showed the jury videos, taken from surveillance cameras at Bradberry's apartment building, and matched the videos with phone records that showed Davis communicating with Fatico and co-defendant Chasity Wilson at key moments during what investigators described as a "botched robbery."

The video's also showed a male suspect, attempting to conceal his identity, who bore a physical resemblance to Davis. Fatico had testified the man in the video was Davis.

Fatico and Wilson have each pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted first-degree burglary in the case and are each serving a 13-year state prison terms.
