Andrea Lea Davis, 36, of Hot Springs was booked into the Garland County jail March 27, 2014, on charges of manslaughter and use of a communication device in furtherance of a felony.

A Hot Springs attorney who faces manslaughter charges in the 2012 shooting death of a man at her home has turned herself in.

Jeff Rosenzweig, an attorney who represents Andrea Davis, 36, said she turned herself in about 10 a.m. Rosenzweig said Davis would remain in custody at least until her first appearance in Garland County District Court, which is scheduled for Friday morning.

Davis and her brother, Matthew Davis, are charged in the Feb. 29, 2012 shooting death of Maxwell Anderson at Andrea Davis' Hot Springs home.

After warrants for their arrests were signed Monday, the Davises agreed to turn themselves in at some point this week. Rosenzweig said Thursday that Matthew Davis was returning to Hot Springs from out-of-state and would turn himself in later Thursday.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel withdrew from the gubernatorial race in January 2013 after acknowledging an inappropriate relationship with Andrea Davis.

Arrest affidavits show Anderson had agreed to provide the Davises $1,200 worth of methamphetamine and that his fatal shooting by Matthew Davis "was the result of a drug transaction gone bad," the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported Thursday.
