A man accused of committing a murder-for-hire in Danville has been ordered back to Vermont by federal authorities

A man accused of committing a murder-for-hire in Danville has been ordered back to Vermont by federal authorities. Colorado resident Jerry Banks was arrested at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming last week for the alleged kidnapping and roadside killing of Hawkins Road resident Greg Davis, 49, in 2018. On Tuesday, Wyoming Chief Magistrate Judge Kelly Rankin ordered Banks transferred to Vermont in the custody of U.S. Marshals to face a federal kidnapping charge. “These matters are to be addressed in the District of Vermont,” wrote Judge Rankin in her order. Once Banks arrives in Vermont he will be detained until his initial appearance before Vermont District Court Chief Judge Geoffrey Crawford. Investigators say Banks lured Davis out of his house on Jan. 6, 2018, by posing as a U.S. Marshal. Davis was found the next day hand-cuffed and dead from multiple gunshot wounds near 1648 Peacham Road in Barnet. The U.S. Marshal’s Service confirmed during the investigation that Greg Davis was not arrested by their agency and that there were no active federal warrants for Davis at the time of his death.
