Prosecutors Plan News Conference in Jessie Davis Murder … Bobby Cutts Charged (Update: Cutts Indicted)
A news conference is planned this morning in the case of murdered Jessie Davis and her 9 month old full term fetus. An indictment is expected to be announced. Jessie Davis was initially reported missing on June 15, 2007. We would later learn that Jessie Marie Davis was murdered on June 14, 2007. Davis was 9 months pregnant at the time of her murder. The case against suspected murderer Bobby Cutts was recently presented to a grand jury. A news conference is being planned today. An indictment against 30 year old ex-police officer, Bobby Cutts, is expected to take place.
The news conference was scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Stark County Sheriff’s office. Barr said prosecutors would also discuss Myisha Ferrell, Cutts’ former high school classmate, who has been charged with obstruction of justice. Prosecutors accuse her of helping dispose of Davis’ body.
Davis was reported missing when her mother went to her home and found Blake in a dirty diaper, the bedroom furniture toppled and a pool of bleach on the floor. Blake provided authorities with the first clues, saying: “Mommy was crying. Mommy broke the table. Mommy’s in rug.” Earlier this month, Summit County medical examiner Lisa Kohler said she was unable to determine how Davis was killed. Kohler ruled that the manner of death was a homicide but offered no other details, listing the cause as “unspecified homicidal violence.” (Fox News)
Bobby Cutts Jr. will face one count of murder for Davis’ death and two counts of murder for the death of her unborn child, called “baby Chloe.”
