Marvin Wendell Davenport, Jr. of Warsaw was arraigned last Friday in
Lancaster County Circuit Court on two felony charges of possession of a
weapon by a violent felon and reckless handling of a firearm.
These charges are for an incident at a July, 2010 yard party in Nuttsville that
ended in the death of Jasmine Smith who was hit by a stray bullet and died
on route to the hospital.
Davenport is serving time in the Northern Neck Regional Jail on unrelated
charges from another county.
Also charged with the firearms felonies was his cousin Demar Antonio
Davenport and a cousin of the victim Kevin O’Neil Fauntleroy. They were
arraigned on April 21st and Demar Davenport and Fauntleroy were granted
bond last week. No one has been charged with Smith’s murder.
The Davenports’ cases are set for trial on June 30; Fauntleroy’s for July 7.
