A Macon man accused of killing his daughters mother was extremely jealous over the woman, according to the warrant for his arrest.
Brandon Davis, 30, is accused of killing Chassity Lester, 26, in Macon and dumping her body in north Houston County. Lester, of south Houston County, and Davis have a 3-year-old daughter together. Davis is charged with felony murder and a Superior Court probation violation, according to Macon police.
Davis made his first court appearance Thursday in Bibb County Magistrate Court. A commitment hearing was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. April 18. During a commitment hearing, police can testify about why they charged a person with a crime.
Lesters family said the last time they heard from her was Monday evening. She borrowed her mothers car to go to Macon to see Davis, who Lesters sister said had agreed to pay child support. Davis was the last person to see Lester alive, according to the arrest warrant.
Houston County authorities found Lesters body shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday in a wooded area off Fairgrounds Road. An autopsy showed that she died from blunt force trauma and multiple sharp wounds, indicating she was beaten and stabbed, according to an investigator.
Davis allegedly told others that Lester was found dead, stabbed and raped before the family was even notified of her death, according to the warrant. Macon police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet wrote in an e-mail that she couldnt comment on whether Lester was raped due to the open investigation.
At the times that the Accused was discussing the Victims death, nobody other than the killer or an accomplice would have knowledge of the Victims death, the arrest warrant states.
In addition, the warrant also alleges that Davis made calls from Lesters cellphone after she was found dead. Lesters sister, Patrice Lester, said there was a call made between 4:50 and 5 p.m. Tuesday to an aunt. It was a hang up. Then, there were several calls made to voice mail, said Patrice Lester, who obtained cellphone records from her sisters iPhone.
The warrant states that Chassity Lester reportedly had been cheating on Davis. But mother Shelia Lester said her daughter and Davis had not had a relationship for the past two years.
They werent even dating, Shelia Lester said Thursday. Hes lying.
The only reason her daughter and Davis remained in contact was for him to provide money for their daughters needs such as day care and clothing, Shelia Lester said.
Im just sick of the lies hes telling, she said.
Investigators traced the crime back to a Flamingo Drive home in Macon, where police believe Lester was killed. Davis turned himself in Wednesday.
Davis previously pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute in June 2006 and was sentenced to serve between 180 and 365 days in a probation detention center and eight years on probation. In April 2011, he pleaded guilty to violating his probation by failing to report and pay fees and for committing a new simple battery and criminal trespass. A judge sentenced him to serve 90 to 120 days in a probation detention center and was returned to probation, according to the Bibb County District Attorneys Office.
