NC trial for girl's mother delayed

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Trial has been delayed for the mother of a 5-year-old North Carolina girl who was killed nearly four years ago.

The Fayetteville Observer reported (http://bit.ly/17ZhEYl) that the trial for Antoinette Davis has been delayed from Oct. 14 until Oct. 28.

Davis is accused of giving Shaniya Davis to a man in 2009 to settle a drug debt. Six days later, her body was found in Lee County.

Mario Andrette McNeill was convicted of Shaniya's death and was sentenced to death in May.

The trial was postponed because of a delay in getting transcripts from McNeill's trial for Davis' case.

Davis is accused of first-degree murder, first-degree rape, first-degree sex offense, child abuse, sexual servitude with a child, child abuse sexual act, human trafficking and indecent liberties with a child.
