A parolee with a history of violence that began in grade school headed to the Texas death chamber Tuesday for fatally stabbing a Houston-area man and inscribing the victim’s body with a swastika and initials of a skinhead group.
On Davis’ chest was a tattoo of a swastika outlined with flames and lightning bolts. Another swastika was on one arm and an obscene motorcycle logo was tattooed on the other arm.
“Swastikas sell fear,” he said recently from death row. “I don’t believe in hating just for skin color. Any hatred I have was beat into me.”
Davis said he did not kill Michael Foster, 31, a mildly mentally retarded man who met Davis, then on parole for a marijuana delivery conviction, and Davis’ wife at a Houston bar.
“I’m innocent of this crime,” Davis said. “I was wrong to confess … but I was trying to save my wife.”
Davis’ now ex-wife, Tina McDonald, 31, is serving 40 years after pleading guilty to aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and auto theft for an offense a week after Foster was killed at his apartment in Humble, just northeast of Houston.
The pair was tied to the Foster slaying while in custody for the other offense. They had married two months earlier and met while Davis was in jail. At the time, she was the friend of another inmate Davis knew.
“You couldn’t think of a worse couple hooking up,” said Harris County assistant district attorney Kelly Siegler, who prosecuted Davis for killing Foster.
Davis said McDonald, whom he described as a skinhead, was responsible for stabbing Foster 11 times and beating and robbing him after they drove him home from the bar the night of Aug. 10, 1991.
He said his wife also used a ballpen to inscribe on Foster’s abdomen a swastika and the letters “NSSH” _ which stood for National Society of Skinheads.
Prosecutors said Foster had offered the couple gas money in exchange for the ride home, then told them he didn’t have any cash, enraging Davis.
He had a violent streak in him that he couldn’t control,” Siegler said.
“I can’t wait until this guy’s fried,” Foster’s sister, Pat Foster-Kupritz, told the Houston Chronicle. “What goes around comes around, and this guy is definitely getting his turn.”
Davis contended he was drunk and asleep in the backseat of a car and never was inside Foster’s apartment.
McDonald has given multiple explanations but most recently has said Davis was responsible for Foster’s death and that she’d taken the blame previously at Davis’ request.
“To me, this is worse than death,” Davis said of his confinement on death row. “For me, I’m ready to go.”
