A second suspect has been charged more than eight months after a mother, father, and their 6-year-old daughter were slain in a savage attack at their southwest Houston apartment.
Alexus Williams, 29, faces two capital murder charges, one capital murder charge for a victim under the age of ten, and one aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon charge. These are the same allegations that Williams’ boyhood buddy, 29-year-old Xavier Davis, faces.
Investigators suspect Williams plotted the incident, according to court records. Thursday evening, she appeared in probable cause court, when further facts about the events leading up to the killings were disclosed.
According to authorities and a family member of the victim, Williams was involved with the victim’s mother, Donyavia Lagway. They split up a few weeks before to the rampage. According to authorities, Williams sparked the attack by informing Davis that there was cash in the flat.
A 10-year-old who was shot in the arm pretended to be dead following the murders of her father, mother, and 6-year-old sister at their apartment. HPD is on the lookout for the shooter.
Gregory Carhee, Lagway, and Harmony Carhee, 6, were assassinated on June 30, 2021. Additionally, the couple’s 10-year-old daughter was shot. According to police, she pretended to be dead in order to survive.
The couple’s one-year-old kid did not sustain any injuries. At the time of the shooting, an 8-year-old boy was gone from the residence with his uncle.
Even if Xavier Dominique Davis, 28, gets released on bail, the judge has placed him under 24-hour home arrest. What we discovered following Sunday’s court appearance.
The 10-year-old informed authorities that the killer knocked on the flat door before to the rampage.
Davis was wearing a mask and grabbed the 1-year-old by the hair and hurled him, according to the young girl. He then fatally murdered her parents and sister.
Davis apparently carjacked a guy an hour before the deaths, police subsequently discovered.
Davis was taken into custody in July 2021. His bond application was refused.
Sean Teare, chief of the Harris County District Attorney’s Office’s Trial Bureau Division, claimed homicide detectives obtained phone records revealing Williams’ involvement in the attack.
“We were able to get mobile phone data indicating that she spoke with Xavier Davis throughout the crime,” Teare explained. “She was on FaceTime with Xavier Davis during sections of the murder. He was with her (Williams) 30 minutes before these killings took place. There is no reason why she should not be charged with the same offences as Xavier Davis.”
On Thursday, a judge refused Williams’ release and placed restrictions on his communication with the victims’ families. This comes after the judge stated that Williams attended the victims’ funerals.
“It appears that she attended the burial of the family members she attempted to murder,” the judge stated.
Williams is scheduled to return to court on Friday morning.
