Athens County Prosecutor Opposes Convicted Murderer’s Release

by Emily Baird on September 6, 2009

Athens County Prosecutor, Dave Warren, says he’s opposing the release of a convicted murderer, and his office plans to call for a full board hearing before the man is released.

Richard Davis was convicted of aggravated murder back in 1992.

Warren says Davis shot his girlfriend in the back after a fight. He is calling the incident one of the most serious domestic violence cases in the history of the county.

Davis is scheduled to be released from prison on October 26th.
