Police arrest man after body found near street

RED OAK — Red Oak police have charged a man in the death of another man whose body was found near a street in Red Oak. Police found the body of 27-year-old Devin Alexander Davis about 4:15 a.m. Wednesday near a street. They later determined he’d been killed by a single gunshot. Red Oak police say investigators determined 39-year-old Kevin Duane Staley and Davis had a confrontation earlier Wednesday, leading to the shooting.

Police charged Staley with voluntary manslaughter. He was held at the Montgomery County jail on a $100,000 bond.
