An incident of apparent domestic rage turned fatal when a man trapped and killed his ex-girlfriend in sight of the former couple’s 10-year-old child in Michigan over the weekend, authorities say .
Gregory Keyier-Deniro Davis, 44, is charged with one count of first degree premeditated murder, assault with intent to murder, felony possession of a firearm, felony assault and four counts of a second offense with a firearm in the killing of 40-year-old Annie Salem Namou, according to the Oakland County District Attorney’s Office.
“She was the most caring/loving human being you could ever meet,” a friend of the woman wrote in her obituary comments section. “Her number one love was her daughter, all she wanted was to make sure her beautiful princess lacked nothing. Annie was very hardworking and full of life. She will be missed but never forgotten. love Annie.
Namou’s funeral was held Monday at St. Joseph’s Chaldean Catholic Church.
The incident happened on the morning of May 20 at the Legend Motors of Ferndale car dealership, where she worked in Royal Oak Township, according to law enforcement.
At around 8.40am on Saturday, the accused allegedly followed his ex-girlfriend into the parking lot of the car dealership and used his vehicle to pin his vehicle and prevent her from driving away.
The woman got out of her car and tried to flee, authorities said, but Davis first shot her with a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun as she ran. Then he approached and allegedly shot him again. The second shot was fired at close range, the prosecution said.
The scene unfolded as the couple’s 10-year-old child watched from the passenger seat of the victim’s vehicle, authorities said. After killing the woman, the accused allegedly fired several shots at bystanders in the parking lot, authorities said. Davis is also accused of stealing the gun he used to kill his child’s mother.
Davis reportedly surrendered to police later the same day.
“This is a horrific and tragic incident,” Oakland County District Attorney Karen D. McDonald said in a statement. “Every month, an average of 70 women are shot and killed by an intimate partner in this country. This event occurred in a place of business where other employees were a few meters away. My office has charged this individual with first degree murder, the most serious charge under Michigan law, and we will vigorously prosecute this perpetrator for his alleged actions.
The accused was charged on Tuesday. He is being held at the Oakland County Jail.
Davis faces life in prison without parole if convicted. Michigan does not have the death penalty and is one of only three jurisdictions that has never executed anyone since becoming part of the United States.
