Shaniya Davis: Mother Antoinette Davis transferred while father Brad Lockhart discusses murder

November 25, 2009

On Tuesday, more developments in the Shaniya Davis murder case.

Antoinette Davis, Shaniya’s mother, who has been charged with human trafficking and child abuse, was transferred for her own safety.

According to The Fayettville Observer, Davis was transferred from the Cumberland County Detention Center to the North Carolina Correctional Center for Women in Raleigh, North Carolina.

According to WRAL.com, special attention had to be paid to Davis. She “was being held in a safe-keeping cell away from the general prison population,” according to state Department of Correction spokesman Keith Acree.

Debbie Tanna, a spokeswoman for the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, stated that Davis “is pregnant, so special precautions had to be taken.”

Also on Tuesday, Shaniya Davis’s father, Bradley Lockhart, appeared in the studio with host Meredith Vieira on NBC’s “Today” show to talk about the life and death of his daughter.

Lockhart spoke of the last time he saw his little girl before he left for an out-of-state business trip. He stated that she climbed up into his truck to kiss him goodbye and that they would see each other upon his return. Unfortunately, Lockhart would never see his daughter again.

Vieira pressed the issue as to whether or not Lockhart should have seen the signs that sending his daughter to her mother, Antoinette Davis, was the wrong move. “I don’t think I really missed any (signs). Of course there’s always speculation. There’s always things you could look at and say, well maybe, maybe not,” Lockhart said.

A pensive looking Lockhart added, “We obviously make decisions in life that sometimes have repercussions or adverse situations that drift from our decision. We just have to continue to believe in God and hope that our decisions are the correct ones.”

    Has anyone hard if Brad Lockart and his sister have been interrogated further by law enforcement? They both need to be charged as both of them knew where they were sending Shaniya and to not check on her is proof enough to me that they just dumped Shaniya on Antoinett. Anyway Lockart did not want Shaniya and also was not fit to be a parent if he was that ignorant and uncaring.

    If he was paying the mother for sex with the little girl, then why did he kill her?

    What evidence does the police have, that the mother allowed him to take her? Who said it?
    Has detective Tracy Bowman released any information to the media?

    BTW Sandy, I think you are right. He dumped her then put on a big act which turned my stomach. Likely his new woman didn’t want the little girl in her way. I know how that stuff works.
