Teen Suspect In Davis Couple Slaying To Make First Court Appearance

DAVIS (CBS13) – The 16-year-old accused in the stabbing death of an elderly Davis couple is headed to court for the first time Wednesday.

Daniel Marsh, once hailed as a hero for saving his father’s life, is now facing first-degree murder charges. Investigators say he’s the only suspect linked to the violent double homicide.

The 16-year-old is expected to make his first court appearance at 1:30 p.m. in Yolo County.

He will be tried as an adult and faces first-degree murder charges with special enhancements after prosecutors labeled the murders as heinous and depraved. Investigators believe Marsh was lying in wait for his victims and used torture in their deaths.

“To get to the point of my father being killed, there were a lot of points of failure. That means that parents that didn’t recognize that he needed help,” said Mary Northup, the couple’s daughter.

Northup tells CBS13 she doesn’t believe her parents knew Marsh, even though their home was just two doors down from his father’s home on Cowell Boulevard.

Marsh is being held without bail.
