Davis was wanted on a murder charge for the December 9 killing of Joseph Lindsey. Hartford police say that Lindsey had been stabbed multiple times, and was taken to St. Francis Hospital in a private car. He died in the emergency department a short time later.
After interviewing several witnesses and collecting evidence, police obtained a warrant for Davis’s arrest in late January, though his whereabouts were unknown at the time, and police asked for the public’s help to locate him.
Delaney says that Thursday’s arrest was made by members of the Springfield Police Warrant Apprehension Unit, assisted by the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Unit, the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, and Hartford Police detectives.
In addition to the fugitive from justice warrant for murder out of Hartford, Delaney says that Davis had default warrants out of Springfield for motor vehicle charges.
