John Leo Davis, Michele Erlick Davis: Goodyear Man Stabs Wife To Death In Arizona Home As Kids Watched In Horror

John Leo Davis Jr., is just as sorry as he can be for fatally stabbing his wife, Michele Davis, to death in their home in Goodyear, Arizona. The Daily Mail is reporting now that John Leo Davis was extremely apologetic and cried like a baby when he called 911 to report murdering his wife. His tears didn't make a difference. Police still charged him with first-degree murder. John Leo Davis Jr., is currently being held in the Maricopa County Jail on $2 million bond.

Court records show that the stabbing death of Michele Davis occurred after John Leo Davis Jr., slapped his son in the face for playing video games. When the boy alerted his mother about the assault, she confronted John Leo Davis Jr., and paid with her life.

According to the boy, the couple began arguing, and then all of a sudden John Leo Davis chased his wife around the house with the knife. The chase ended at the front door of the home, where investigators found the victim with multiple stab wounds to the back. She was lying unresponsive in a pool of blood when law enforcement officials arrived, The Arizona Republic reports.

35-year old Michele Davis was transported to a local hospital where she died from her injuries. Since the attack, a total of seven children were taken into custody and placed in the home of family members. Court records also show that a 16-year old child was not at home when the fatal incident took place. John and Michele Davis had just three children together out of a total of eight children.

John Leo Davis was not only abusive to his children and his wife. A background check suggests that John Leo Davis has a criminal history involving multiple domestic violence related incidents. According to The Daily Mail, those charges involved his now deceased wife Michele Davis and two other women from two previous relationships.

Family and friends of Michele Erlick Davis are devastated by the loss. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help her children.
