Man Arrested in Connection with Hinesville Murder

Police have made an arrest in the murder of a Fort Stewart soldier. Officers arrested 22 year old Carlton Davis in Country Club Hills, Illinois, just outside of Chicago.

Police believe he's the estranged boyfriend of 20 year old Lakeitha Sims. Sims was found dead in her home at the Eagle Creek Mobile Home Park in Liberty County on August 17th. Her baby daughter was found next to her, unharmed. Police say Sims and Davis lived together while he was in the Army and for a short time after he got out.

Davis is currently in an Illinois jail, awaiting extradition.
