An Alabama man named Cedric Dewayne Robertson has been taken into custody by the authorities for allegedly kidnapping and killing his ex-girlfriend, as per PEOPLE. Nakita Chantryce Davidson, a mother of four, had been dating Robertson for quite a while. But, after knowing his past criminal history and experiencing his behavioral patterns, she wanted a break as per the interview that her brother gave to Al.com. But she was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend before she could go through with the break-up, and it still isn't clear why Robertson took this step.

As per the investigation, the authorities have been able to deduce that Robertson crashed into his girlfriend's car, after which he fatally shot the woman and stuffed her body in the trunk of her own car. Following this, he drove away in the woman's car and left it in a secluded location.

A missing report was filed with the authorities for Davidson on Thursday, April 11, following which the Birmingham Police Department looked into the matter and found out about the car crash that occurred near the  Elmwood Cemetery & Mausoleum. The car was not at the scene when they arrived on the scene to check the premises, but there were some signs of assault.

Their search led the cops to "a wooded dead-end area” more than four miles away, where they found Davidson's car and along with it, her body. This development made the team launch a manhunt to grab Robertson, the main suspect in the case. It went on for 36 hours with Sheriff's deputies finally arresting Cedric Dewayne Robertson, 37, around 6:40 p.m. Friday, April 12.

Inmate information on Robertson has revealed that he has been charged with capital murder during first-degree kidnapping, as well as first-degree kidnapping. It is unclear how he has pleaded to the charges, and no court date has been revealed to the public. Police have been able to locate a single SUV: a burgundy and black Chevy Traverse with an unknown year and tag number, which they believe was the vehicle used by Robertson to attack his partner.

In their probe, the team initially got confused between the vehicles, mistaking the Chevy for Davidson's vehicle, but were able to put the pieces in place in due time. A GoFundMe page has been set up by Davidson’s brother, Laderrius Swain to raise money for her memorial service. In his statement, Swain calls the whole ordeal a "senseless act of violence" that has left 4 kids without their mother.
