On Tuesday, the 4th a Sikeston woman went to trial in Mississippi County for the 2014 death of a 57-year-old man. Both the prosecution and defense agreed that 29-year-old Savannah R. Davis, of Sikeston, hit John Sharber with her car July 11th, 2014. Davis faces charges of first-degree involuntary manslaughter, armed criminal action, and kidnapping. Forensic pathologist Russell Deidiker testified Sharber from bleeding and swelling around his brain. New Madrid County Prosecuting Attorney Andrew Lawson says Davis drove to Morehouse then stopped in Cape Girardeau before driving to Saint Francis Medical Center. Lawson says because she was spooked by police near the hospital, Davis put paper towels over her license plates and wore a bag with eye holes. Davis’ public defender Susan Warren says she did not know she hit Sharber and repeatedly talked to another person in the vehicle about trying to get him up. Warren says Davis and Sharber were having an affair and met that night to get some money.
