The St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Mississippi man on an attempted first-degree murder charge following an investigation into an incident that occurred involving a Mandeville-area juvenile.
In late August an 8-year-old male claimed Jared Davis had attempted to strangle him while at his residence in Mandeville. The month-long investigation resulted in a warrant being issued for Davis’ arrest. A warrant was also issued for the arrest of the child’s mother on one count of Accessory After the Fact. She was picked up at her Mandeville-area residence on September 25 and booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail. Davis was picked up at a family member’s residence in Stone County, Miss., that same day and transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail, where he was booked for one count of Attempted First-Degree Murder.
The juvenile was placed in the custody of a family member.
