Leslie Davis

A 56-year-old Slidell man was indicted by a St. Tammany Parish grand jury this week for his alleged role in the shooting death of Krystle Landor in November, a spokeswoman for 22nd Judicial District Attorney Warren Montgomery said.

Leslie Davis Jr. was indicted on charges of manslaughter, obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact, Lisa Page said.

Ex-boyfriend kills woman before fatally shooting self, St. Tammany officials say

Landor was shot to death outside her home by ex-boyfriend John Malveaux, a 36-year-old Slidell man. He committed suicide, shooting himself as police closed in.

Davis is accused of aiding and abetting Malveaux during and after the killing of Landor. He's also accused of tampering with evidence "with the specific intent of distorting the results of any criminal investigation or proceeding."

Landor called police the night of her death to report that her ex-boyfriend, against whom she had a protective order, was a passenger in a vehicle that had followed her home, according to a St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office report from the time.

Davis was identified as the driver of the car, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Minutes after she called, a second call came in saying that she had been shot.

Deputies pursued the vehicle to a residence in Pearl River, where Davis was detained. Malveaux ran inside the house and shot himself, according to deputies.
