Mother of slain child bonds out

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Antoinette Davis - mother of slain 5-year-old Shaniya Davis - has bonded out of jail.

Shaniya disappeared from her Fayetteville home on November 10, and her body was found days later in a wooded area just south of Sanford.

According to court documents, 29-year-old Mario McNeill killed the girl the same day she was reported missing.

He is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree rape, and kidnapping.

Shaniya's mother, 25-year-old Antoinette Davis, is charged with human trafficking and child abuse involving prostitution.

Davis had been held at Central State Prison in Raleigh, but a Department of Correction spokesperson said she was released on a $51,000 bond and was transferred back to Cumberland County by deputies.

Sources say the money for bail was put up by a private bondsman.
