On October 12, 2005, police arrested Amy Heather Davis, 25, an "escort" Salanti had met two years earlier in an internet chat room. Addicted to meth, Davis once stole $30,000 from Salanti, but he forgave her despite being warned by friends to terminate the relationship. In custody, Davis told authorities she was standing outside Salanti's condo smoking a cigarette on September 23, 2005, when two men approached and forced her at knifepoint to help the rob the former actor. She did so under duress and the influence of her drug addiction. At trial in San Diego on March 12, 2007, Davis faced a first-degree murder charge with special circumstances (murder committed during a robbery). If convicted, she would receive an automatic sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Rather than an unwilling participant in the crime, Davis was painted by the prosecution as a woman who betrayed Salanti's friendship for the opportunity to rob him of drugs and cash. She knew the combination to Salanti's safe, and more damningly, her fingerprints were found on the duct tape used to bind the Silk Stalkings bit player. Three days into the proceedings, a mistrial was declared after the evidence of a polygraph test administered to Davis was inadvertently entered into the trial record. A new jury was quickly impaneled and after deliberating for three days found Davis guilty of first-degree murder with special circumstances on April 11, 2007. As of March 2014, Inmate #X28708 was incarcerated at the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla.
