Darryl Anthony Priestly


The man suspected of murdering 19-year-old Brandie Danielle Davis at Campus Crossings in December of 2009 pled guilty in an appearance in Bulloch County Superior Court today. 18-year-old Darryl Anthony Priestly, charged with the strangulation murder, gave no motive and made no statement while entering the plea. Priestly plead guilty to charges of murder, tampering with evidence and giving false statements to police. He also waived all rights to future appeals. Bulloch County Superior Court Judge William Woodrum then sentenced Priestly to a life sentence on the murder charge and a total of 10 years to serve on the other charges. Davis was found dead in her Campus Crossings apartment Dec. 8, 2009, after she did not show up in McDonough for her mother's heart surgery. Both she and Priestly were from McDonough, where they both attended school.
