On Dec. 2, Davis was involved in a car chase with New York State Police, WHAM reported. When Davis was caught, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated and other traffic violations, police said.

Since that arrest, Davis has been in custody due to a parole violation, authorities said.

WHAM reported that an indictment was unsealed and Davis was charged with second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

The December incident is not the first time Davis faced a murder charge, police said.

Police say they arrested Davis when he was 15 years old for allegedly shooting and killing Alexander Marquez in 2012. At the time, he faced a second-degree murder charge.

Davis pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, according to police, and he served 40 months in a juvenile detention facility.

Davis remains in custody and his next court date has not been announced.
