— A 25-year-old Raleigh man was arrested early Wednesday in connection with the fatal shooting of a woman in northeast Raleigh.

Brian O'Keith Davis II was jailed without bond on a charge of murder in the death of Danielle Anita Hodges, 27, whom police found dead in her home, at 3552 Limber Lane, shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Davis lives at the home, too, according to an arrest warrant.

Police haven't commented on their investigation, but in a 911 recording released Wednesday, an unidentified woman who also lives at the home reported that Hodges was Davis' girlfriend and that "they've been having problems off and on for quite a few days."

"Please hurry," the caller told the 911 dispatcher. "She's a mother, please."

Davis has previous arrests, according to arrest records, including a March 2009 charge of assault on a female and a April 2011 charge of assault by pointing a gun, but those charges were eventually dismissed voluntarily.

    In cases like this, if found guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt, the death penalty should be swift. None of the appeals on technicalities, blah, blah, blah.

    If found to be guilty as charged, then execute him and decrease the surface population. Killers don't deserve the right to live in a free law abiding society.

    Your comment shows you are not the brightest bulb in the pack. He just looks like a young man, who just took another human beings life, and destroyed his. Its sad all the way around.

    Domestic violence to not restricted to those with lower intelligent levels or socioeconomic status It crosses all boundaries. And a gun into the mix, and this is usually the end result.
