Little Rock, Arkansas — A man involved in the November 2020 homicide of Alexander Davis was arrested by The Little Rock Police Department.

Over a year after the incident, police charged Bennie Powell Jr. with the capital murder of Davis.

On Monday, November 23, shortly before 6:30 p.m., Little Rock police responded to a shooting on Eagle Drive.

Upon arrival at the scene, they found 23-year-old Alexander Davis dead from gunshot wounds.

According to his mother, Brandy Baker, days after Davis’s death, she didn’t understand how anybody could kill a man with a good heart. She said he was just serving turkeys for others the day before he was shot.

“I still don’t even like to talk about it,” Baker said in 2020. “I kept him on his toes. I guess he kept me on mine because I’m still waiting for him to walk through the door and see if he’ll open that door and say ‘Mama’ with that crooked smile he has.”

Kaneika Miller, Davis’s cousin, in December 2020 said it’s time for everyone to put the guns down.

“Life is not a game. You shouldn’t have to go anywhere and worry about someone taking your life. We want justice. We the police, the people that we pay our taxes to, to find out who killed our cousin,” said Miller.
