INDEPENDENCE – Eight more indictments, which were sealed by a Grayson County Circuit Court grand jury that met Jan. 27, have been unsealed against Greyling Dwayne “Beany” Davis.
Previously, Davis was indicted on charges of kill and murder, malicious shooting, possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a violent crime and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony – subsequent offense.
According to a story that appeared previously in the Declaration, Davis is charged in the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend, Karen Cates, and wounding David Patton.
On March 20, 2016, the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a double shooting call at 20 Terri Lane in the Fairview community. When they arrived, deputies found Cates, of the residence, and Patton of Pulaski County, with apparent gunshot wounds.
Sheriff Richard Vaughan said in the story, “shortly after 8 a.m. on March 20, Davis returned to Terri Lane, found Patton outside the residence smoking a cigarette and forced him back into the residence at gunpoint. Once inside the residence, Davis allegedly shot both Patton and Cates.”
Davis fled the shooting scene and was taken into custody in the early morning hours of March 21 by Alleghany County, N.C., officers, after he wrecked his car in a police chase on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Police said a .38-caliber pistol was found in Davis’ car.
New indictments that were unsealed include:
• Abduction (Karen Cates).
• Abduction (David Patton).
• Attempted murder (David Patton).
• Attempted use of a firearm in the commission of a felony – subsequent offense.
• Three counts for the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony – subsequent offense.
• Discharge a firearm in dwelling.
Davis continues to be held without bond in the New River Valley Regional Jail in Dublin. No trial date has been set.
