Holly Davis Sentenced to 25 Years for Senseless Murder of University Student Yue Jiang

PHOENIX—Holly Davis (D.O.B. 10/20/1983) was sentenced to a mandatory 25 years in the Department of Corrections for 2nd Degree Murder in the death of 19-year-old Yue Jiang.

“This sentence is the maximum penalty for 2nd Degree Murder and reflects the senseless nature of the acts of the defendant and the degree of harm that was inflicted upon the Jiang family and all victims in this incident,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “This Office joins the family in their sincere wish that no other family in the future will suffer a loss like this again.”

On January 16, 2016 the defendant was driving near Broadway Road and McClintock Drive when she stopped at a red light. Another car driven by the victim Yue Jiang pulled into a turn lane near the defendant and shortly after was struck by the defendant’s car. When Jiang’s passenger got out of her car to look at the damage of the collision he saw the defendant had a gun and immediately got back into the car. The defendant then got out of her car and walked up to the driver side of Jiang’s car and shot at her multiple times hitting Jiang three times across her body. Jiang and her passenger did not know the defendant and did not exchange words or have a confrontation with the defendant prior to the shooting.

Jiang drove her car away from the area trying to escape the assault and eventually collided with another car. She was transported to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead. The defendant was seen by witnesses as getting back in her own car after the shooting and then driving away.

Investigators were able to use vehicle information and descriptions from witness to track the defendant to an apartment complex where she was arrested. Davis denied any involvement in the shooting, but told investigators if she had been involved, it was because she was depressed and wanted police to kill her.
