Man kills baby, gets out of prison, kills another

GREENVILLE, SC (WYFF) - A man who killed his first daughter in 1995 and spent 11 years in jail was sentenced Thursday for killing a second daughter after his release.

Daron Duane Davis, of Greer, was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Davis previously pleaded guilty to homicide by child abuse in the death of his child, Sondaria Davis. She died after being beaten a month before her first birthday.

Davis was sentenced to 20 years in prison. His girlfriend, Sondaria's mother, was also charged and was sentenced to probation.

Davis was released from prison in 2006 after serving about 11 years of his sentence.

He was arrested again in January 2011 after his 5-month-old daughter Keris Davis died of multiple head injuries from blunt force trauma and shaking.

At the time of Davis' second arrest, Thirteenth Circuit Solicitor Walt Wilkins said sentencing laws have stiffened since Davis' previous homicide by child abuse conviction.

"Now, someone who is convicted of this crime or pleads guilty to this particular crime must pay 85 percent and then they become eligible for parole," Wilkins said.

If the current sentencing laws had existed when Davis was first convicted, he would have been in prison through at least 2012.

On Thursday, Davis was convicted of homicide by child abuse. This time, he will spend the rest of his life in prison.
