The third person arrested in connection with a brutal assault case in Lake Country two years ago has been sentenced.

Stuart James Davis pleaded guilty in March to aggravated assault, unlawful confinement and extortion. Last Friday, he was sentenced to 31 months, 15 days in jail. He is also subject to a lifetime firearms prohibition.

Davis, along with Shelley Doris Tubbs and James Merkley, came to the attention of local RCMP on Feb. 6, 2009, after Brent Doyle called police to tell them he had been attacked inside a room at the Teddy Bear Lodge in Lake Country earlier in the day.

Doyle had gone there with Merkley to pick up some crack cocaine supplies, but instead over a period of several hours he was kicked, stomped and punched by the two men.

He was also hit in the back of the head with a knife and struck with a frying pan.

At one point, Tubbs was called to bring transfer documents for Doyle’s truck, and Doyle was forced to sign over his truck to the group.

He escaped after he convinced the trio he would give them money from his bank account if they drove him to an RBC branch near Polson Place Mall in Vernon.

Merkley and Tubbs have already been sentenced for their roles in the crime last year.
