Man accused of luring mayor from wife

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (AP) - The former wife of Southaven Mayor Greg Davis is seeking $1 million in an alienation of affection lawsuit against a 26-year-old Starkville, Miss., man who she says broke up her marriage by luring Davis away from her.

Suzann Savage Davis claims in the suit that Jansen Fair told Greg Davis he was looking forward to a tryst in Las Vegas. The Commercial Appeal reports ( ) the suit was filed Thursday in DeSoto County.

It's the latest in a string of legal battles for the Southaven mayor. He was ordered to repay more than $170,000 in city funds that the Mississippi auditor's office says he misspent and he faces possible criminal charges in an FBI probe. Also, Davis's former wife seeks to change their divorce terms in a separate court action.
