Davis had eluded authorities since being indicted on charges of first-degree premeditated murder and kidnapping in the killing of Baugh; as well as attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of Baugh’s boyfriend.
Police say Baugh was lured to a phony home showing, kidnapped and found shot to death in a Minneapolis alley.
