Alabama Woman Out on Bond Wanted for Murdering a U.S. Veteran!
The decomposing body of a man was found on September 1oth at the Park at Buckingham apartments in Birmingham's Homewood area leaving the community in shock.
Authorities say that the body of Johnnie Will Anderson III had been in his apartment for days before they made the discovery. They didn't have a motive but, they had a suspect.
29-year-old Alexandria Nicole Davis was arrested and charged with capital murder in Anderson's death but, she was already out on bond for a crime she committed last year. Davis was arrested on August 30 in Hoover on drug charges and released on bond, and she had pleaded guilty to a vehicle theft in 2020.
That plea required that she successful complete a court ordered program or serve 18 months in prison. A judge ruled she was non-compliant on September 12.
It gets worse. According to AL.com, Davis is also charged with attempted murder in the unrelated stabbing of another woman that happened in Birmingham on Saturday, just hours before she was arrested in Hoover. Authorities say she was in Anderson’s stolen vehicle when she was taken into custody at the Circle K on Lorna Road.
In the Birmingham case, the stabbing happened sometime Saturday in the 1500 block of 13th Street South. No additional details were immediately available in that case except that the victim is a 36-year-old female.
The lookout bulletin for the suspect in the stabbing matched the description of Anderson’s missing vehicle. An officer spotted the wanted vehicle Saturday afternoon.
Both Homewood and Birmingham police also responded to the scene, and Birmingham police placed Davis in the Birmingham City Jail pending their ongoing stabbing investigation.
Birmingham detectives then charged Davis with attempted murder and obstruction of justice, claiming she provided them with a false identity. After the formal warrants were obtained, she was booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 3:51 p.m. Monday on bonds totaling $165,000.
Johnny Will Anderson III was a U.S. Army veteran and he leaves behind a 10-year-old daughter. “He was a loving father, brother and son,’’ his sister, Alexsis Anderson, told AL.com. “He was one of a kind and will truly be missed.”
“His motto was, ‘It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish,’’’ she said.
