Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason announced that Stephon Davis plead guilty to one count of aggravated murder and one count of aggravated robbery.
Sentencing is scheduled for Friday, January 13th at 11AM in Judge Joseph Russo's courtroom. Davis faces a maximum sentence of life in prison with parole eligibility after 40 years.
On April 5, 2010, Davis, 31, and co-defendant Latesha Santos, 34, both of Cleveland, got into a car accident with the victim, 26-year-old Angel Bradley-Crockett, a mother of three.
Davis was driving a van he borrowed from a friend. Davis and Santos lured the victim to drive her car to a secluded area to discuss the car accident, but really intended to rob her. The victim parked her car near Santo's residence on E. 66th Street and Charter Avenue (in Cleveland). The victim was lured into the van where she was beaten and strangled. Davis and Santos took the victim's clothes and personal items and disposed of her body on I-90 West near West 41st Street in Cleveland. The victim was found on April 5, 2010. DNA from blood found in the van borrowed by Davis matched the victim's.
On February 17, 2011, Santos plead guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter, one count of aggravated robbery, and one count of offenses against a human corpse. She also agreed to testify against Davis at trial. Santos' sentencing is scheduled for January 13th, at 11AM.
