Yesterday (March 15, 2022), a Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a complaint at a residence on Highway 38. Upon his arrival, the deputy encountered two persons who were bound by judicial protection orders not to be in the presence of each other. The couple had been in a physical altercation which resulted to injury to Nunnery as well as destruction of her property.
Both were arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail. Davis, age 61 and a resident of Highway 38, was booked into the jail for violation of a protective order, domestic abuse and criminal damage to property. Nunnery, age 50 and also a resident of Highway 38, was charged with violation of a protective order and domestic abuse.
Davis has two previous stays in the Washington Parish Jail. In 2008, he was charged with failure to appear in court. In January 2022, he faced more serious charges of attempted second degree murder, aggravated assault, failure to appear in court and driving under suspension. His attempted murder charge resulted from a January 1 incident in which he stabbed Nunnery in the neck. After spending seven days in jail, Davis posted a $16,500 bond for his release.
Following the stabbing, Nunnery sought and obtained a protective order against Davis. At that time, a protective order issued a few months later was in effect. The first protective order was sought and obtained by Davis against Nunnery.
Nunnery also has two previous stays in the Washington Parish Jail. In 2009, she was charged with failure to appear in court. In 2021, she was charged with domestic abuse battery.
“You can’t make this stuff up,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “This is a classic he said/she said situation. It seems that these folks have a serious relationship problem which is exacerbated by lack of emotional control. It seems logical that both would benefit by going in separate directions.”
