Richard Davis sentenced to death for rape of 5-year-old girl

A Caddo Parish jury sentenced Richard Davis to death.  Davis was convicted Monday of the rape of a 5-year-old girl and prostituting out a 16-year-old.
Because of the girl's young age, Davis was sentenced to death under a law re-enacted from 1995 that allows capital punishment for the rape of a child under 12.
Davis becomes the first person sentenced to death under the law in Caddo Parish.
We'll have more on this landmark decision tonight on KSLA News12.
