    Default Slain girl's mom: 'I gave her to him to cover $200'

    Slain girl's mom: 'I gave her to him to cover $200'

    FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A judge ruled Friday that statements made to police by the mother of a 5-year-old Fayetteville girl who was murdered almost four years ago can be used during her upcoming trial, despite defense arguments that investigators bullied her during days of questioning.

    Antoinette Nicole Davis, 29, faces numerous charges in connection with Shaniya Davis' death, and defense attorneys said prosecutors should be barred from introducing her statements to police as evidence at her trial, which is scheduled to start Oct. 28.

    Shaniya was reported missing from her Fayetteville home on Nov. 10, 2009, and Fayetteville police talked to Davis, other family members and neighbors to generate information to help locate her.

    Davis' lawyers said Friday that investigators questioned her on and off over four days but never advised her of her rights to remain silent and to confer with an attorney. Prosecutors responded by saying that she was never under arrest during the questioning – she was there only to help police find her daughter – and so never had to be read her Miranda rights.

    "She was arguably coerced and bullied by two law enforcement officers," defense attorney D.W. Bray said, noting that, by the fourth day of questioning, she was sobbing and, in the words of prosecutors, "broke."

    "I gave her to him to cover $200. He was only supposed to have sex," a weeping Davis told investigators.

    The statement led police to Mario Andrette McNeill and eventually to Shaniya's body, which was found Nov. 16, 2009, in an overgrown field on the Lee-Harnett county line. An autopsy determined that she had been sexually assaulted and suffocated.

    McNeill, 32, was convicted in May of kidnapping and assaulting Shaniya before killing her, and he was sentenced to death.

    Prosecutors allege that Davis gave Shaniya to McNeill to settle a drug debt.

    She had been charged with first-degree murder, first-degree rape, first-degree sex offense, child abuse, sexual servitude with a child, child abuse sexual act, human trafficking and indecent liberties with a child. Prosecutors on Friday also charged her with criminal conspiracy and first-degree kidnapping.

    She doesn't face the death penalty in the case.

    Bray said Davis' statements should be thrown out, arguing that police browbeat her so much that she was effectively in custody.

    Superior Court Judge Jim Ammons denied the motion, saying that her statements were voluntary.

    "There were no threats or suggestion of violence" by police, Ammons said, adding that he would preclude prosecutors from using any statements she made after her arrest.

    The defense also has called for the human trafficking charge to be dismissed, at the very least. McNeill's kidnapping conviction makes pursuing a human trafficking case against Davis "legally impossible," according to Bray, because either Davis gave her consent to McNeill taking the child or he abducted her.

    Meanwhile, in South Africa...

    Diepsloot toddlers: South African rape and murder charges

    Four men have been charged with the rape and murder of two toddlers in the South African township of Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg.

    A fifth suspect was arrested on Friday after police issued an identikit photo.

    His arrest sparked violent protests outside a police station in Diepsloot as hundreds of demonstrators demanded he be handed over to the crowd.

    Police fired rubber bullets to disperse those who had blocked a road and were throwing stones and burning tyres.

    The bodies of two girls, aged two and three, were found dumped in community toilets on Tuesday morning.

    The girls, who were cousins, went missing on Saturday from outside their home while playing with friends.

    Earlier this week, President Jacob Zuma urged people not to take the law into their own hands.

    South Africa has one of the highest rates of sexual violence in the world. Police figures show that 64,000 cases were reported last year.

    According to the South African Press Association, the girls' funeral is going be held on Saturday.

    The fifth suspect was arrested early on Friday morning in Alexandra, a township in Johannesburg, a day after his photo-fit image was released along with an offer of a 100,000 South African rand award ($10,200, £6,300) for information.

    He is expected to be charged on Monday.

    The case of the four men charged in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Friday was postponed until next Thursday to allow for them to seek legal aid.

    Diepsloot, in Gauteng province, is a shanty town with little infrastructure, where the vast majority of residents are unemployed.

    Competition for jobs often leads to friction between local residents and foreigners.

    Following the discovery of the girls' bodies on Tuesday, foreign-owned shops were looted and Somali shop-owners told the BBC's Somali Service that they had to flee the area until the police arrived.

    The head of Gauteng province, Nomvula Mokonyane, visited Diepsloot on Friday.

    "This is something that must never happen to anybody's child," the Gauteng premier said outside the girls' family home.

    Earlier this year, South Africans were shocked by the gang-rape of a 17-year-old girl who later died in hospital.

    One man last week admitted his part in her killing.

    It was an attack that saw South Africans drawing parallels with the brutal rape and killing of a 23-year student in India's capital, Delhi.

    South Africa, a country of 52 million people, has more cases of rape reported to the police each year than India, a country of one billion.

    Not to mention the asshole drug dealer who likes fucking and killing small children.

    Yeah, there are a couple of questionable individuals in this tale. Too bad they're the survivors.
