UPPER MARLBORO, MD — Jury selection has begun in the trial of a man accused of shooting and killing a Prince George’s County school teacher and their 2-year-old daughter, according to a WTOP report.
Elementary school teacher Neshante Alesha Davis, 26, and her daughter, Chloe Nichole Davis-Green, of Fort Washington were shot to death Feb. 2, 2016. Prince George’s County Police have charged the toddler’s father, Daron Maurice Boswell-Johnson, 25, of Forestville with murder and he has reportedly admitted his involvement in the mother/daughter homicide.
Davis was a teacher at Bradbury Heights Elementary School in Capitol Heights. According to the school’s website, she taught second grade.
Investigators believe Boswell-Johnson went to Davis’ townhome to confront her about child support issues.
According to Maryland online court records, Davis took the suspect to court in 2015; a paternity test found that Boswell-Johnson was the child’s father. A Prince George’s County judge in December 2015 ordered Boswell-Johnson to pay $600 a month in child support.
He faces two counts of first- and second-degree murder.
