U.S. student who killed parents at university appears in court via video

CMU Police detail events leading up to double murder

Davis is accused of shooting and killing his parents, Diva and James Davis Sr. of IL, around 9 a.m. Friday on the fourth floor of Campbell Hall in the Towers residence hall complex. Davis Jr. shot them with his father's gun, authorities told reporters on Saturday, leading to a 16-hour manhunt that ended with his capture along train tracks in the freezing MI air early Saturday.

Officials say the parents were helping their 19-year-old son, James Eric Davis Jr. pack up for spring break when they were fatally shot.

Davis waived his right to a pre-exam conference within two weeks "given his situation in the hospital", said his court-appointed attorney, Joshua Blanchard.

Davis Jr. remains under guard at a hospital, where he was taken following his arrest early Saturday.

A Central Michigan University student accused of shooting and killing his parents last week inside his dorm room faced a judge Tuesday afternoon.

Students received an alert Friday just after 9 a.m. about a report of shots fired on campus. He was taken to an area hospital, where his parents picked him up the morning of the shooting.

AP has since reported that the gun used by Davis was registered to his father.

Davis Jr. sat quiet, and expressed little emotion. They say Davis was seen on a train passing through the north end of campus shortly after midnight.

Central Michigan University police called Diva Jeneen Davis on Thursday with a message of concern about the behaviour of her son, James Davis Jr., saying that perhaps it would be best if she and her husband came to pick him up. More than 100 police officers, some heavily armed in camouflage uniforms, had searched neighborhoods near Central Michigan University following the shooting. The father was a police officer with the Bellwood Police Department in IL, according to WZZM 13 (see above).

Mt. Pleasant police have confirmed the victims are the parents of the teen police are looking for after the shooting.
