A Hot Springs attorney whose relationship with Attorney General Dustin McDaniel led to McDaniel withdrawing from the race for governor is now charged with manslaughter.

Garland County authorities have issued arrest warrants for 36-year-old Andrea Davis and her brother - Matthew Davis - in the shooting death of Maxwell Anderson outside Andrea Davis' home in February 2012.

An attorney for the Davises told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that he's made arrangements with the special prosecutor in the case for both Andrea and Matthew Davis to surrender sometime this week.

McDaniel admitted in December 2012 to having an inappropriate relationship with Davis. He later dropped out of the governor's race.

Davis' law license was suspended last month by the Arkansas Supreme Court after she was charged with felony theft.
