Married Couple Killed in Chesterfield Murder-Suicide

Posted: Updated:

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC)—A married couple with a history of domestic disputes was found dead inside a car Sunday night in what police are calling a murder-suicide.

Around 9:15 p.m. on Jan. 12, Chesterfield Police responded to the 12000 block of Mason Avenue for a report of a shooting. Officers found 39-year-old Nequia S. Davidson and her husband, 38-year-old Terrell D. Davidson, suffering from gunshot wounds. Both died at the scene in what appeared to be a domestic-related murder-suicide.

The Davidsons resided on the 8200 block of Seaview Drive. According to Chesterfield Police, the evidence suggests that Terrell Davidson killed his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Before Sunday's fatal incident, the couple had had three other domestic fights. Just days before on Friday, Jan. 10, a Preliminary Protective Order was filed on behalf of Nequia Davidson against her husband. According to Chesterfield Police, the protective order was violated before they could arrest Terrell Davidson.

"The evidence indicates that he forced her off the road into a ditch, and the vehicles were side by side," said Chris Hensley of the Chesterfield Police Department.

Police say Terrell Davidson then got out of his car and gunned down his wife.

"Our dispatch received a 911 call from Terrell Davidson, our suspect, stating that he had shot and killed his wife," Hensley said.

Terrell Davidson told dispatchers he planned to take his own life.

"Officers had obtained warrants for him and were actively searching for him, but did not know his exact location," Hensley said.

An ABC 8 News crew stopped by the address listed on the Preliminary Protective Order and spoke with a woman who identified herself as the couple's daughter. She did not wish to speak on camera.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660.
