Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp said Octavis Montrell Davis, 22, allegedly assaulted the victim, Danny Ray Arrington, 55, Thursday night at a residence in the Justice Branch Road area of Littleton.

At the time, Arrington was transported to a local medical center for treatment but due to the severity of his injuries was airlifted to a another facility.

Arrington died Saturday from the injuries he sustained from what Tripp described as a physical assault.

The sheriff said this evening he was not prepared to discuss motive in the case. He described Arrington and Davis as associates.

On the night of the assault Davis was charged with attempted murder and jailed on $1 million bond.

After the murder charge was served he is now jailed without opportunity for bond and has a March 7 court date.
