Teacher arrested in connection with 2-year-old’s murder case

NORCROSS, GA – A shocking revelation has emerged as Gwinnett County Public Schools confirmed that a Norcross woman, charged in connection with a 2-year-old’s murder dating back to 2020, is employed as a teacher within the district. Kianna Davis, 32, was apprehended by Warner Robins Police and the Houston County Sheriff’s Office on Friday in relation to the child’s tragic death.

In her arrest photograph, Davis can be seen wearing a Seckinger High School sweatshirt, confirming her association with the school district. Further inquiries revealed that Davis commenced her employment with the district at Peachtree Ridge High School in January 2021, where she remained until 2022. She subsequently relocated to Seckinger High School in July 2022.

Principal Jimmy Fisher, in an effort to address the situation promptly, issued a letter to parents on Monday, disclosing the teacher’s arrest and confirming the launch of an investigation. Davis has been absent from school for nearly two weeks, and she will not be permitted on campus during the ongoing inquiry.

Fisher empathized with the parents, acknowledging that news of the arrest has circulated among students and on social media. He assured parents that a substitute teacher would cover the responsibilities of the teacher in question in the interim. Fisher emphasized the school’s commitment to fostering a safe and positive learning environment and encouraged parents to reach out with any concerns.

The disturbing case involves Davis and another individual, 32-year-old Kiyton Benton, who stand accused of brutally assaulting 2-year-old Karter Ambrose with an unidentified object. The child sustained severe liver damage and tragically succumbed to his injuries. Both Davis and Benton face a litany of charges, including malice murder, felony murder, cruelty to children in the first degree, aggravated assault, second-degree murder, and cruelty to children in the second degree. These charges stem from their failure to seek medical attention for young Ambrose.
