Savannah > Murder Suspect Arrested in Fort Valley

| March 24, 2015


SAVANNAH — A 24-year-old man wanted in Savannah on murder and related charges was arrested early Monday in Peach County.

William Darnell Davis and two other people are accused of the Nov. 15 slaying of a 22-year-old man during an armed robbery in the Hudson Hill neighborhood of west Savannah. Davis was jailed at 2:32 a.m. at the Peach County jail, according to jail records.

Arrest warrants were issued for Davis on one count of murder and two counts each of aggravated assault and armed robbery. Taylor Lavan LaCount was previously arrested on the same charges in December in connection with the shooting death of T’arsha Williams.

A third person, Trinika Latrell Beamon, also is sought on the same charges. Beamon remains at-large, said Julian Miller, Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police spokesman.

Peach County Sheriff Terry Deese said Savannah-Chatham investigators interviewed Davis at the jail Monday and headed back to Savannah.

About 11:30 p.m. Sunday, a caller contacted 911 about Davis being seen at a Peach Road residence near Byron. Once Savannah-Chatham confirmed the arrest warrants for Davis, the sheriff’s emergency response team was called in and sent to the residence. Davis was arrested at 1:25 a.m. without incident. He was asleep when the tactical team of sheriff’s deputies and Byron police entered the residence, Deese said.

“We’re just glad to get him off the streets,” Deese said.

Davis was among the most wanted suspects listed on the website of Crimestoppers of Savannah-Chatham County.

Davis, LaCount and Beamon are accused of luring Williams to Hudson Street where he was shot during a robbery attempt about 3:30 a.m. Williams was found dead in a gray Pontiac that had rolled into a building, according to a Savannah-Chatham metro police news release.

Davis is being held at the Peach County jail waiting to be picked up by Savannah-Chatham deputies, Deese said.

Beamon is black female, standing 5-foot-6 and weighing 135 pounds with long hair that sometimes is worn in a twist with shaved sides. She is considered armed and dangerous. Metro detectives suggest anyone who is aware of her location not approach her but immediately call 911, or Crimestoppers for Savannah-Chatham County.
