The teenager accused of stabbing an elderly Davis couple to death inside their home wants the torture charge against him dropped.
According to other testimony, both were stabbed more than 60 times each. Claudia begged him to stop as she died. Prosecutors say Marsh confessed to then mutilating their bodies.
During a preliminary hearing, investigators testified they not only had a detailed confession of stabbing each victim dozens of times, but they say he admitted he had thought about killing people since he was 10.
While a motive may never be known, CBS13 obtained court documents that show a list of the suspect’s apparent mental issues.
Shackled in a shirt and tie, showing little emotion, Daniel Marsh, 16, asked for a public defender, saying he couldn’t afford counsel.
