Date:

robert-davis-240x300-2796813-9295514A Washoe County man was convicted this week of first degree murder for his role in killing his younger brother in 2011.

Robert Davis was found guilty last week after an appeal of a case in which he was previously found guilty of murder with a deadly weapon in 2012.

The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic dispute between Davis and his brother on September 9, 2011 in Mogul.

According to a statement by the Washoe County D.A.’s Office,

“The incident took place at the brothers’ Mogul property, which consisted of adjoining residences. Law enforcement initially separated the brothers due to Matthew Garrett Davis’ erratic and threatening behavior which stemmed from mental health issues. Robert Davis later returned to the residence in the early morning hours of September 10, 2011, intoxicated and confronted the victim. During that confrontation, Davis shot his brother with a shotgun and fled the area. An investigation followed and Robert Davis was located, arrested and subsequently charged with Murder by this office.”

Davis is scheduled to be sentence in November. He faces a sentence of life in prison.
