Smith’s sister and Conyers’ girlfriend, 38-year-old Tamiko Smith, is charged as an accessory to murder.

Shaquita Smith’s body was found Friday afternoon in a ditch off Park City Drive after she hadn’t been seen since April 29.

Police said Smith and the suspects were involved in an argument over their living arrangement, during which Conyers stunned Smith several times with a Taser, then stabbed her multiple times.

“The victim was then gagged, placed in the trunk of a car, and then discarded in the ditch where she was found,” said Asst. Chief Chris Butler, of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Butler said Shaquita Smith moved to Jacksonville from Arkansas about nine months ago.

Conyers is being held in the Duval County jail without bail. Tamiko
