YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Friday, the state continued to present its case against a defendant accused of killing a woman almost two years ago. 

Dashonti Baker is accused of shooting Rae’venna Faircloth-Thomas in the summer of 2017.

Prosecutors say the two had been arguing over a piece of property.

Earlier this week, Baker’s girlfriend, Barraya Hickson, pleaded guilty to a charge of obstruction in the case.

Investigators believe that she was the getaway driver.

If Baker is convicted, he could face life in prison.
