Davis Convicted of Murder

Harrison County, Miss. It took a Harrison County jury less than an hour and a half to find a Clarke County man guilty of the murder of Nathan Baker, exactly one year after his shooting death.

The trial of Keith Allen Davis was moved to Harrison County due to intense media coverage.

Davis was charged with shooting and killing EMEPA worker Nathan Baker in June 2012, when Baker came to Davis' home to turn the power off.

District Attorney Bilbo Mitchell and Assistant DA Dan Angero tried the case.

Mitchell says many folks from Clarke County were there for the trial, including all of Baker's family.

The jury started deliberating at 12:53 p.m. Tuesday, and came back with a guilty verdict at 2:20 p.m.

Clarke County Sheriff Todd Kemp says it was a tough trial, but he's pleased with the outcome. "This was a very horrific case, one of the worst we had in the county in a long time, said Kemp. "Just a terrible event. Just an end of a good man's life. And maybe now the family has some closure, some partial closure."

Davis was immediately sentenced to life in prison, without parole.
