DAILYKENN.com --“It ain’t look like poking. It was like — slash,” he said at the time. That how Zyairr Davis described the stabbing death of 18-year-old college freshman Tessa Majors, according to foxnews.com.
Davis was 13-years-old when the crime occurred, reports say.
Davis intends to enter a guilty plea, the report said. What he will plead guilty to is uncertain. The baby-faced boy has insisted that he did not kill Majors when she was brutally robbed and stabbed to death by a troop of teens at Morningside Park in New York City.
The report failed to mention what the teen would plead guilty to.
Davis is now 14 years old, the same age as George Stinney when he was executed for murder in 1944. Stinney is the youngest person ever to be executed by a government in the USA.

A teen murder suspect in the slaying of Barnard College student Tessa Majors is expected to plead guilty Wednesday for his involvement in her botched mugging death, according to an official.
Zyairr Davis, 14, has admitted to helping Luchiano Lewis, 15, and Rashaun Weaver, 15, rob the 18-year-old college freshman in Morningside Park in December 2019, but has denied being the one who stabbed her.
Lewis allegedly put Majors in “a bear hug or headlock” during the robbery, while Weaver allegedly stabbed her with such fury that feathers flew from her winter coat, authorities have alleged.
The pair were arrested in February some two months after Davis.
Davis was initially charged with murder, but it was not immediately clear Tuesday what he would be pleading to.
