UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - A Prince George’s County man has been found guilty of murder for the deaths of his young daughter and the child’s mother outside of her Fort Washington home.
Officials say Daron Boswell-Johnson fatally shot NeShante Davis and their 2-year-old daughter, Chloe, on Feb. 2, 2016.
According to prosecutors, Davis was placing their daughter into a child seat in her car when she was approached by Boswell-Johnson, who was waiting for her to come out of her house. Boswell-Johnson shot both victims multiple times after having a dispute with Davis over child support.
Police say Johnson admitted to the murders and told them he had been ordered by the court to pay $600 a month in child support after a paternity test determined that he was the 2-year-old girl's biological father.
Boswell-Johnson was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of use of a handgun in the commission of a felony. The jury deliberated for about two hours before reaching the verdict, according to the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office.
Boswell-Johnson is facing a maximum of life in prison without parole, officials say.
