Jury hears confession tape of Md. man charged with killing toddler, mother

WASHINGTON — The jury hearing a murder trial in Maryland has just heard the confession of the man accused of killing his 2-year-old daughter and her mother.

As part of its evidence, Prince George’s County attorneys presented an interrogation video of Daron Boswell-Johnson in which he is heard confessing to killing 2-year-old Chloe Davis-Green and her mother NeShante Davis in February 2016.

The two victims were discovered shot to death in the parking lot of their apartment in Fort Washington, Maryland.

Detectives who interviewed the 25-year-old said in court that Boswell-Johnson waited outside Davis’ home and confronted her about child support he was recently ordered to pay before allegedly shooting her and then the child in her car seat.

Prosecutors told the jury that Boswell-Johnson drew a map that led investigators along the route he took, and that led them to where he dumped the gun used in the shooting. The weapon was never recovered.

Boswell-Johnson’s defense team has yet to present its case.
