Chicagoland: Convicted Murderer Who Could Look Like Obama’s Son Charged in Triple Homicide

Posted by on Apr 02, 2012 at 7:45 am

Actually he’s a little old to look like Obama’s son, so let’s just say he could look like Obama’s brother instead.

A man who finished serving a sentence for murder four months ago has been charged with a triple-slaying last week that left a South Side home strewn with bullet-riddled bodies.

Curtis A. Davis Jr. was once friends with the three men he’s now charged with shooting to death March 27 at an apartment in the West Woodlawn neighborhood, prosecutors said.

Dozens of shell casings littered the scene, and one victim was found on the porch, his body marked by 33 bullet wounds, authorities said.

One victim’s mother lives next to the two-flat building where the shooting happened.

“It sounded like an army, there were so many shots,” said Deborah Stewart, the mother of victim Terry Brown, 34, who lived in the apartment.

On Sunday, Cook County Judge James Brown ordered Davis, 40, held without bail on three charges of murder. Davis, bald and dressed in a plaid shirt, did not speak during the brief hearing.

Davis was freed from prison about three years ago after serving time for the February 1989 murder of a man in a public housing building in the 4400 block of South Evans Avenue in the Bronzeville neighborhood, according to prosecutors and court records. Two other men were acquitted in separate trials, but jurors found Davis guilty in 1990 and he was sentenced to 40 years, according to court records.

He was paroled in November 2008, and he finished serving his sentence in November 2011, said Stacey Solano, a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Paroled in November 2008, just in time for Hopenchange.  Oh well, that’s all over now.
