Accused killer: Mystery doctor made me do it

William Davis charged with murder in death of Fabiana Malave

SANFORD, Fla. – The man accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering a Seminole County teenager now says a mysterious man made him do it.

In court Monday, defense attorneys for William Davis played a recorded conversation between Davis and Seminole County deputies.

In that conversation, Davis says he was in Baldwin Park when a "Dr. Paul" approached him and said that he had to kidnap someone and take the person to his house or "Dr. Paul" would somehow harm Davis' girlfriend and her child.

"He had a picture of them together and he asked me if I loved them and I said 'Yes,'" Davis said in the recording.

Davis said after being threatened by "Dr. Paul," he kidnapped Fabiana Malave and took her to his Pine Hill home, where "Dr. Paul" watched him sexually assault the 19-year-old.

"He had me do things to her," Davis said in the recording. "He had me rape her while he watched."

During the recorded conversation, Davis also says that "Dr. Paul" told him to kill Malave, but he couldn't. When Davis left his bedroom to throw up, he returned to find that "Dr. Paul" had killed Malave, he said.

Defense attorneys for Davis are trying to build a temporary insanity defense. His attorneys say he wasn't talking his medication when he attacked Malave.
