Woman found shot to death in field

The Robeson County Sheriff's Department is investigating the circumstances behind a body that was found in a field, Saturday afternoon.

A neighbor discovered a woman's body in a field across from her home on Hero Lane just outside the city limits of Maxton.

The woman has been identified as 33-year-old LaTonya Thompson Davis, according to Major Anthony Thompson.

He says she was shot in the chest.

At this time, investigators are treating her death as a homicide, but that could change pending autopsy results.

Preliminary results are expected sometime Monday.

We will have more information as it becomes available.
