HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – Prosecutors in Hampton have upgraded their case against Tonya Slaton, from concealing a body to second degree murder.
Slaton is charged in her son’s death. Virginia State Police say troopers found the remains of Quincy Davis in Slaton’s car during a traffic stop on I-64 last June.
Davis attended school in Virginia Beach, but no one has seen or heard from him since 2004.
The direct indictment lists the murder offense date as June 24, 2004, which implies he has likely been dead for more than a decade.
As far as how he died, that remains unknown. The Medical Examiner’s Office lists the cause of death as undetermined.
The court document lists her arrest date on the murder charge as Feb. 5, 2016. Slaton is due back in court on Feb. 25.
