The North Carolina Office of the Chief Medical Examiner released its autopsy report Tuesday in the murder of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis.

It confirmed what investigators had already said - that the girl was raped and strangled.

Shaniya disappeared from her Fayetteville home on November 10, and her body was found days later in a wooded area just south of Sanford.

According to court documents, 29-year-old Mario McNeill killed the girl the same day she was reported missing.

Shaniya's mother, 25-year-old Antoinette Davis, is charged with human trafficking and child abuse involving prostitution.
