Personal life[edit]

Davis's older sister, Lesley Herring, disappeared in Los Angeles on February 8, 2009, after a fight with her husband, Lyle Stanford Herring, Sr.[2] Davis reported her sister as missing when she failed to show up to work, her husband having neglected to do so. Lyle Herring was charged with his wife's murder and in April 2010 pleaded not guilty.[3] On April 8, 2013, he was convicted of the second-degree murder of his wife. To date, her body has not been found.[4] A 2011 episode of Nancy Grace and a June 7, 2013, episode of Dateline NBC covered Davis's sister's case.[5]

Aasha is married to Jesse Pforzeiheimer and have a son together.
