Mark Chumley Found Guilty of Capital Murder for Death of NWA Woman


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — A local man has been found guilty for his involvement in the murder of a Northwest Arkansas woman.

Mark Chumley, 49, was convicted of capital murder for being an accomplice to a capital murder for the 2015 death of Victoria Annabeth Davis.

The state is seeking the death penalty.

Davis was held captive for hours before she was beaten to death by Chumley and four others. 

The victim’s husband already pleaded guilty to the same charge and was sentenced to 37 years in prison.

The three other defendants are being held in the Washington County Detention Center.

Chumley first went to trial in May, but a mistrial was declared.
