Teen Suspect In Davis Couple Slaying Had Been Honored For Saving Father’s Life

DAVIS (CBS13) — The teenager accused of brutally slaying an elderly couple in their Davis home was honored for saving his father’s life four years ago.

Daniel Marsh, 16, is accused of killing Chip Northup, 87, and his 76-year-old wife, Claudia Maupin, in April.

A criminal complaint released by Yolo County officials on Tuesday revealed he’s facing first-degree murder charges. Those charges have enhancements highlighting the alleged depravity of the crime, as well as lying in wait to kill and inflicting torture on the victims.

The daughter of one of the victims said nobody in the family knows who the teen is.

CBS13 has learned that Marsh’s father lived in the condo two doors down from the couple that was searched by the FBI on Monday.

Four years ago, Daniel Marsh was honored by the Red Cross for saving his father’s life during a heart attack.
