Lawton man charged with manslaughter

LAWTON, Okla._James Davis Jr., the suspect in Lawton’s fifth homicide of 2015, was charged Friday.

Davis is accused of fatally stabbing 36-year-old Keith Kern Friday night. Court documents say Davis and the victim were dating the same woman and the three had run-ins before. Witnesses say the woman stabbed the victim herself just three weeks before he was killed by Davis.

Kern was found dead at a home on Southwest "A" Avenue July 10. The affidavit says Davis had gone to the home to help the woman move out when he and the victim got into an altercation and Davis stabbed the victim six times.

Davis was arrested two days later.

When officers took him in, they found a cell phone and what appeared to be a note with detailed questions and answers about the murder. Officers then obtained a warrant to search the phone, but have not released any details on what they found.

Davis is charged with first-degree manslaughter. He remains behind bars on a $250,000 bond.
