Convicted Killer Dodges Death Penalty

Anthony Davis is facing three life sentences for the murders of Miquel Avalos and his two sons.

A Jury found no aggravating circumstances in the case thus sparing Davis from the death penalty.

Davis was convicted last week of the killings in 2012. He was found guilty on three counts of First Degree Murder and Use of a Weapon to Commit a Felony.

Prosecutors said Davis planned to rob Miguel Avalos on July 9, 2012 during a drug deal. He shot Miguel and his sons, Jose and Miguel Avalos, Jr. in the head.

According to prosecutors, Miguel Avalos, Sr. was the target of a narcotics investigation. The confidential informant in the case allegedly told police about Avalos and helped Davis find Avalos the night of the murders.
