Burning woman’s fiance angered with police

KSAL StaffDecember 8, 2014

The fiance of a woman who was raped and set on fire in a Wichita park said the man charged in the attack should have been kept in jail.

Twenty-six-year-old Cornell McNeal, of Wichita, faces one count of capital murder or an alternative count of first-degree murder in the death of Letitia “Tish” Davis. She suffered from burns on more than half her body and cuts on her head in the Nov. 14 attack and died Nov. 22.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Davis’ fiance, Marty Bell, wonders why McNeal had not been kept in jail. McNeal had been accused of pummeling his 52-year-old neighbor nine days before the park attack. But McNeal left a work-release facility two days before the attack.

McNeal’s attorney has declined to comment.
