An Appling County man will spend the rest of his life in jail for shooting his toddler's mother to death. 

A year ago, Baxley police responded to shooting on Bay Street, where they found Tiesha Davis shot three times. They tracked James Vann to Surrency, where they learned Davis had picked their child up from Vann earlier in the day.   

A jury found Vann guilty on all six charges including malice murder, felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during a crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  

The judge gave Vann life without parole.
