THE young woman who was knifed to death in Northamptonshire, England, over the weekend has been revealed as a mother-of-two who was killed as she tried to break up a fight.
Named locally as 25-year-old Levi Davis, the woman was killed on Wellingborough Road near St George’s Way around 8.30pm on Saturday, December 7. The emergency services rushed to the scene after reports that a woman was lying in a pool of blood on the street, however, despite their best efforts, she sadly could not be saved.
Friends have revealed that Miss Davis, who lived less than half a mile away from where she was killed, was trying to break up a fight between two men when she was stabbed.
A woman who knew Miss Davis told the Mirror that she tried to get in the middle of them but ended up being knifed. She added that everyone that who knew the young mum is absolutely shocked and distraught.
Several young women in tears also paid their respects by lying flowers at the scene where the murder took place. One said: “Her name was Levi Davis and she was amazing. She lived very nearby. I don’t want to say any more about it but she was lovely and didn’t deserve this.”
Heartbroken friends have paid tribute to the mum on Facebook, where one wrote: “OMG I can’t believe this. Your poor little girls. RIP Levi Davis.” Another wrote: “RIP Levi, such a beautiful girl, always laughing whenever I saw you. So shocking and sad.”
Northamptonshire police initallly arrested a 13-year-old boy and a 27-year-old man on suspicion of murder. A second 27-year-old man was then later arrested for the same crime, with the 13-year-old boy being released without charge on Sunday night (December 8).
