Her daughter's body was found yesterday.

The mother of 5-year-old Shaniya Davis is pregnant.

According to ABC News, Jail officials said for that reason, Antoinette Davis, 25, was being kept separate from the rest of the prison population.

Shaniya's body was found yesterday after a nationwide search. Her mother is accused of human trafficking, prostitution, and felony child abuse in her daughter's disappearance.

Shaniya's father, Bradley Lockhart, came out to a vigil last night to honor little Shaniya.

"I ask you to give me and everyone who loved poor Shaniya -- my little baby, my angel -- the strength to continue on," Lockhart told the crowd that gathered.

Shaniya was last seen alive at a Comfort Suites hotel in Sanford, NC, last week -- the same morning her mother reported her missing from her Fayetteville home. Police say a surveillance video from the hotel showed the child with 29-year-old Mario Andrette McNeill.

McNeill turned himself in Thursday night, and police say he confessed to taking the 5-year-old.

Momlogic- maybe you can have the writer of the article Pregnant Women in Prison step into defend her! So funny alot of the readers were so quick to judge the system for how it deals with pregnant inmates…wonder if they’ll feel different about this monster being chained during delivery?

I agree with you to a point. I think that it simply depends on the situation at hand. Obviously, Shaniya’s mother is not fit to have any children, and does not deserve any special treatment. Look at the charges against her. But I think that each situation should be treated differently and the mother’s charges and past are what should be taken into consideration.

i think that they system fails our kids everytime and they have two monsters on t.v. that are a disgrace to this country, this ugly mother sold her child instead of protecting her from a jerk that kidnapped raped and then murdered her took her innocense away from her shaniya was a beautiful child that was taken away too soon from a dad who loved and protected her and now feels guilty because he was trying to be a good parent and let her be with her mom and look what happened his beautiful daughter is gone and now he is her coping with the death of his baby. antionette davis does not even deserve to be called a mother and she should never be allowed to be around children again her son should not be given back and the baby she is caring should immediately be taken and i know that GOD has the last say and i hope that he makes them suffer and for all the dummies in antionette’s family who thinks she is innocent that need to burn right with her and i pray for bradley lockhart and his family that GOD continues to give them the strength that they need to overcome this tragedy the lockhart’s have everyone in the country’s blessing and we are with your family 100 percent and hope that both monsters get the death penalty with no trial
