UPPER MARLBORO – A Prince George's County jury deliberated for about two hours before finding Daron Boswell-Johnson guilty of the murder of NeShante Davis and their two-year-old daughter, Chloe in February 2016 outside of her Fort Washington home.
According to charging documents, Johnson was outside in the parking lot of Davis' residence at the 1300 block of Palmer Road waiting for her to leave the day of the fatal shooting.
After putting her daughter in the car, police believe Johnson confronted Davis about child support issues. An argument arose, and Johnson pulled out a gun and allegedly shot Davis and their daughter.
During his interview with detectives, he allegedly admitted to the murders and told them it was because he had been ordered by the court to pay $600 a month in child support after a paternity test determined that he was the two-year-old girl's biological father.
“This is another tragic case of domestic violence,” said Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks. “These are the issues that have to be resolved in our families in this community.”
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.
Boswell-Johnson is facing a maximum of life in prison without parole, officials say.
