Daye doesn’t want Davis to receive a bond, feeling he should remain behind bars until the trial.
“My son did not deserve this. He have five kids. He have a 1-year-old that’s left out here in the streets and this man fighting trying to get a bond. You don’t give a murderer a bond,” said Daye.
WBTV reached out to the Iredell County District Attorney’s Office to ask about the situation. They left a voicemail saying, in part, “Our office does not comment on pending cases.”
While still deeply grieving her son’s death, Daye said she wants to get justice for her son and for Davis to continue to be held without bond.
“I hurt every day cause this is a feeling that don’t go away. It don’t go away. All I want is justice for my son. Right is right and wrong is wrong,” Daye said.
According to Iredell County Sheriff’s Office records, Davis doesn’t appear to have a bond or an upcoming court date.
