A Lafayette Parish grand jury has indicted a Lafayette man with murder in connection with the death of Jacquelyn "Daisy Lynn" Landry.

The indictment accuses Malik Davis, 22 of the second-degree murder of Landry on May 24. Landry's family and friends have been searching for her since May. She was last seen on May 23. She has never been found, but crews have searched for her as recently as last weekend. The crews were searching for her in Oberlin for the second time; searchers told us that they were operating on "tips" when they chose the search location. 

If convicted, Davis faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without benefit of probation, parole or suspension of sentence. 

Records show that Davis also faces counts of simple robbery and possession with intent to distribute Schedule II controlled dangerous substances.

Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson John Mowell said the counts are unrelated to Landry's disappearance, although they did come after Davis was booked on a count of second-degree murder in the case.

The Sheriff's Office has not released additional details on what led to the additional charges.

Detectives arrested Davis on May 31 and upgraded the missing-person case to a homicide. But authorities have not released any information on how Davis and Landry were connected and on what led them to book Davis in her disappearance.
