CHICAGO — An 18-year-old woman is charged with helping her boyfriend hide the body of a man he killed in a Chicago alley. Judge David Kelly detained Kailea Davis as a willful flight risk after prosecutors said she fled to Arkansas after the murder.

We told you about the murder in January when prosecutors charged Davis’ boyfriend, 27-year-old Jordan Allison, with killing his own cousin late last year.

Allison, Davis, a witness, and Allison’s cousin, 29-year-old Jarvael Miller, met up on November 4 to buy drugs in Chicago, prosecutors said during Allison’s detention hearing.

After completing the deal, they went to Allison’s semi-truck sleeper cab, which was parked in south suburban Lansing. While they were all sitting in the truck, Allison shot Miller several times as Davis and the other witness watched, prosecutors alleged.

Immediately after the murder, Davis returned to the truck to get Miller’s clothing, prosecutors said in a court filing. She also cleaned up Allison’s truck and helped Allison dump Miller’s body in an alley behind the 5600 block of South Wabash, according to the document.

Davis and Allison fled to Arkansas after the murder, prosecutors said. Police in Crittenden County, Arkansas, just west of Memphis, arrested Allison on an unrelated matter earlier this year and held him on a murder warrant out of Cook County.

Police arrested Davis in Sangamon County, Illinois, on April 1. She is charged with concealing a homicidal death and destruction of evidence.
