A Maryland man has been charged with murdering his 2-year-old daughter and her mother. The man confessed to waiting to confront the woman over child support payments according to NBC Washington reports:
Daron Boswell-Johnson, 25, was charged Wednesday in the deaths of NeShante Davis, 26, a beloved elementary school teacher, and their daughter, Chloe Davis-Green. The mother and daughter were shot outside their townhouse about 7 a.m. Tuesday in Fort Washington, Md.
Boswell-Johnson, of Forestville, Maryland, was angry over $600 in monthly child support he had been ordered to pay, sources tell News4. He was confirmed to be Chloe’s father in December through a DNA test conducted as part of a paternity suit, sources said.
According to the preliminary investigation, Boswell-Johnson went to Davis’ and their daughter’s home early Tuesday to confront Davis about the child support, officials said Wednesday evening at a news conference.
He told police he drove to Davis’ home, parked down the street and waited for her to exit. Boswell-Johnson told police he then approached Davis at gunpoint and demanded she drop the petition he pay her $600 per month in child support. He then shot her and the toddler multiple times, he told police, court documents say.
Boswell-Johnson was escorted outside Wednesday by police. He expressed little emotion, walking in a white jumpsuit with his head down and ignoring reporters’ questions.
