One of the four suspects charged in connection with the kidnapping and murder of Danville resident Greg Davis has made a deal with the government. Aron Lee Ethridge, 42, of Henderson, Nev., was indicted by a grand jury in April on a federal kidnapping charge for allegedly conspiring to kill Davis, 49, in January of 2018. On July 8, a notice of plea agreement between Ethridge and the government was posted in U.S. District Court in Burlington. Ethridge has pleaded not guilty to the kidnapping charge and faces a possible sentence of up to life in prison. According to court documents, Ethridge is accused of communicating with alleged Colorado hit-man Jerry Banks, before and after the kidnapping and murder of Davis. The FBI says Banks posed as a fake U.S. Marshal to kidnap Davis from his Hawkins Road home on Jan. 6, 2018. Davis was found the next day hand-cuffed and dead from multiple gunshot wounds in a pull-off on Peacham Road in Barnet. Banks was arrested at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming earlier this year and remains in federal detention.
