Former Hot Springs Attorney and Brother Face Arrest in 2012 Death

Andrea Davis and Matthew Davis face charges in the death of Maxwell Anderson.
Update (12:35 p.m.):
HOT SPRINGS, AR - FOX16 News has obtained the arrest warrant for a former Hot Springs attorney facing a charge of manslaughter and other charges in the 2012 death of a man at her home.

The document reveals details about what police say happened between Andrea "Andi" L. Davis, 36, her brother, Matthew "Matt" Davis and the victim in the case, Maxx Anderson, 34, in the hours leading up to his shooting death.

The warrant states that Davis and her brother told investigators Anderson was shot at her home during an argument that turned physical after they confronted him for taking money from them that was supposed to be used to install a home security system for Matt Davis.

During that argument, the siblings said Anderson had hit Andi Davis with a golf club and Matt Davis defended her. Investigators had noted that furniture, including a couch and an ottoman, was overturned in the living room.

After Anderson was shot, he stumbled out of the house and collapsed on the driveway. He was pronounced death at the scene.

The warrant states that investigators examined cellphone records and determined that Andi and Matt Davis had given Anderson $1,200 to buy them drugs and when he did not deliver them as expected, they believed he had ripped them off.

The warrant states that Anderson suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the upper chest and an open pocket knife was found tucked into his waistband. 

Also noted in the warrant is that after Anderson's death, his girlfriend found a box inside their locked mailbox that contained 18.8862 grams of meth valued at $1,200.

Original story (10:30 a.m.):
HOT SPRINGS, AR - Arrest warrants have been issued against Hot Springs lawyer Andi Davis, 36, in connection with the shooting death of a man on her property in February 2012.

Officials with Garland County District Court say warrants for one count of manslaughter and one count of unlawful use of a communication device were issued against Davis on Monday.

The warrants stem from the shooting death of Maxwell Anderson at Davis' home in Hot Springs on February 29, 2012.

Saline County prosecutor Ken Casady was appointed special prosecutor for the case in December.  Calls to his office were referred to Garland County authorities Wednesday.

Davis grabbed headlines in December 2012 when a divorce proceeding with her husband revealed a relationship with attorney general Dustin McDaniel.  McDaniel was running for governor to succeed Mike Beebe and later left the race after admitting to "an inappropriate relationship" in January 2013.

Officials with the district court indicate Davis had not surrendered to the charges as of early Wednesday.

Davis was charged with two counts theft of property in January.  Her law license was subsequently suspended in February.

Garland County circuit judge David Switzer also recently found Davis guilty of four counts of contempt of court, according to records.
