Police say that on Aug. 9 rescue crews were called to the Davis residence for a medical call regarding 47-year-old Jean Lemire.
Police describe Lemire as a vulnerable adult who was living in Davis' home.
If convicted, Davis could be sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Davis is due in court in December.
