Judge rules on statements in murdered NC girl case

 
Posted Monday, April 29th 2013 @ 11am

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) _ A Superior Court judge says jurors can be told that attorneys for a man who's charged with killing a 5-year-old Fayetteville girl told police where to find to her body.
 
But Judge Jim Ammons ruled Monday they can't say the information came directly from Mario McNeill. The 32-year-old McNeill is charged with raping and killing 5-year-old Shaniya Davis in November 2009.
 
Shaniya's body was found in a kudzu patch near the Lee-Harnett county line. She was found six days after her mother, Antoinette Nicole Davis, reported her missing.
 
Investigators say Davis sold her daughter to McNeill to pay off a drug debt. She'll be tried after McNeill's trial ends.
 
Last week, Ammons ruled that McNeill is competent to stand trial.
