Convicted felon charged in 2009 slaying

A convicted felon serving a 4-month sentence for a misdemeanor has been charged in the 2009 strangulation of a woman in a vacant West Englewood home.
Melvin Fagan, 38, is charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 16, 2009 slaying of Abbie Davis, a woman in her 40s, who was found strangled in the vacant building in the 5500 block of South Seeley Avenue.
Fagan, of the 7800 block of South May Street, was ordered held without bail on Friday by Cook County Criminal Court Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr..
In 2009, police were called to the building about 2 p.m. that day after someone called authorities, and found Davis’ body, nearly frozen and partially clothed.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office later determined she had been strangled in a homicide.
Fagan has an arrest record dating back to the 1990s, and also has used the name Shawn Davis. After being sentenced to a year in prison in a 1994 unlawful use of a weapon case, he pleaded guilty in a 1996 armed robbery and armed violence case, and was sentenced to 13 years in prison.
But by 2005, he was arrested again on a felony drug charge, for which he was sentenced to 4 years in prison in 2006.
Fagan was arrested in January on charges of carjacking and theft, but the case was dropped.
In June, he was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing identification, and sentenced to 125 days in jail in August. He was at the jail when he was charged
