Three in Davis family facing charges

Published: Sat, December 4, 2010 @ 12:01 a.m.

Michael Davis, 20, likely will spend the rest of his life behind bars for one of the worst mass murders in the city’s history, but his younger brothers and mother also are making themselves well-known to police.

James Davis, 18, and his brother Scott Davis, 19, both of Silliman Street, are in Mahoning County jail. The brothers are jailed on a list of charges associated with harassing, threatening and fighting neighbors.

Scott Davis faces two counts of felony intimidation as well as charges for unauthorized use of property, assault, aggravated menacing, resisting arrest and obstruction of official business. His bond was set at $100,000

He has a Friday court date before Judge Elizabeth Kobly of Youngstown Municipal Court. He also is scheduled to appear Jan. 4 before Judge Robert Milich of Youngstown Municipal Court.

James Davis faces misdemeanor charges of aggravated menacing, disorderly conduct, assault, obstruction of official business and resisting arrest. His bond is $40,000. He also is due back in court Jan. 4 before Judge Milich.

According to police, the brothers showed up at the Silliman Street home of a 20-year-old man in early November demanding to fight. The home’s residents told police they have been having problems with the Scott brothers for an extended period of time.

According to reports, the man and a female resident went out onto the porch to ask the brothers and their friends to leave when the Davis brothers began beating the man. The victim reportedly was left with a swollen eye, cut lip and broken eyeglasses.

Witnesses told police, the brothers then ran to their home when police had been notified. Officers did not find the men inside the house but did find the house in a state of disarray with animals and animal feces everywhere and a portable toilet in the living room with human waste inside.

The early November melee was not the first clash the Davis brothers had with the neighbor. They reportedly also started a fight with and threatened to shoot members of the same household after a female ran from the Davis home to the home of the victim asking for help.

The Davis brothers also are accused of firing a shot from a pellet gun at and pistol-whipping a 17-year-old Warren Avenue boy Nov. 7 on the South Side. The boy had been walking with his girlfriend, who has a sister who was in a relationship with one of the Davis brothers.

James and Scott Davis were arrested after police served a search warrant at their home three weeks ago. The brothers led officers on a foot chase through backyards in their neighborhood.

Ann Davis, 38, mother of the Davis brothers, has been charged with aggravated menacing. She is accused of going to the neighbors’ home, blaming them for having her sons arrested, then breaking several solar lights in the front yard.

Authorities said Scott Davis added to his legal troubles Nov. 29 when he reportedly cursed and threatened a couple sitting in the courtroom during one of his court appearances. Reports say Scott Davis threatened to kill the man and called the woman a foul name.

Michael A. Davis is serving time in prison for setting the East Side house fire that killed six people Jan. 23, 2008. He received a 310-year prison sentence from Judge R. Scott Krichbaum of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Never fear, big brother will get out sooner than sentenced when he makes a deal and gets out early. Kirchbaum is the judge on his case. He just let a child rapist out early.The baby brothers will get slapped on the wrists and be put on house arrest and parole, then will flee, never to be found by the mastermind of the valley. It's status quo for the valleys well-educated idiots in making plea deals and early release deals.

This family is a pack of dogs who prey on good people.They all belong behind bars for life to protect us good people out here.The mother must have been a crack head who had crack babies as it shows in their up bringing. The framily feels the killer in the family got a bad rap, poor babies he desires death by slow fire,he needs to feel the pain he gave to six people, I say burn him at the stake and lets save some tax money. Pigs there never going to change.

You have nip these kind of "families" in the bud to have any kind of chance in a neighborhood.

We had a nice street until an older lady got ill and some younger relatives moved into the house. Same deal, mother in mid 30s with high school aged son who was playing with fire, bringing over every stray dropout friend in town.

Mother was apparently more than willing to furnish alcohol to underage minors. She actually had a stroke recently yet is back to smoking habit along with teen son.

Have brought in fire and police departments which has calmed down the situation but still got to see the idiot son urinating against their garage in broad daylight last week.

What a waste of DNA.

How proud the mother must be...oh wait...she's an idiot, too. No mention of a father, of course. I'll bet he's a real gem. Lock them all up, throw away the key. Hopefully, they haven't reproduced any offspring to carry on the family tradition of murder and intimidation.

There are thousands of more kids like this. Happens every day. They just don't always get caught. Until people understand and become committed to raising their children right, and when I say that I mean lead by example, there will continue to be more and more dysfunction and crime coming at younger and younger ages.

None of these inbred savages will spend any time behind bars, and their murderous sibling will eventually be free to rejoin them. There will be a mother-child reunion in the living room with the feces filled toilet.

Oh wait! These evil miscreants ARE the feces!
