A woman charged in the shooting death of another woman at a Tunica gas station last week is being held after her arrest in DeSoto County last Friday.  

Tunica County jail information shows 21-year-old Keyshawndra Danielle Davis is being held without bond after being booked into the facility Friday evening, June 4.  

Davis is facing felony murder charges in the death of 20-year-old Tayangela Carlisle on Wednesday, June 2. 

According to Town of Tunica Police Chief Michael Nichols, Davis turned herself into U.S. Marshals in a public place in DeSoto County, although he did not more specifically identify the location.  Marshals then took her back to Tunica County, where she was booked into jail.
