Daniel William Marsh, 16, pleaded not guilty on June 19 in Yolo County Superior Court to charges that he killed elderly Davis residents Oliver Northup and Claudia Maupin on April 13. He will continue to be held without bail.
Due to his age, Marsh is not legally elegible for the death penalty or life imprisonment without possibility of parole, according to the Yolo District Attorney’s office. The Public Defender’s Office has been appointed to his case. Marsh faces two counts of first degree murder and special circumstances including torture, lying in wait and heinous and depraved murder.
His pre-hearing conference is scheduled for July 2.
