Hearing postponed in Davis double-homicide case

WOODLAND — Pre-trial proceedings for a Davis murder suspect were postponed for two weeks Tuesday so that attorneys in the case can obtain and review the roughly 175 reports still being finalized by the Davis Police Department.

Daniel William Marsh, 16, is being charged as an adult for the April 13 stabbing deaths of Oliver “Chip” Northup, 87, and Claudia Maupin, 76, at the couple’s Cowell Boulevard condominium. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, plus special circumstances of multiple murders, heinous and depraved murder, lying in wait and torture.

He was arrested June 17, shortly after Davis police identified him as a suspect in the case.

“At this point I haven’t received discovery yet,” Ron Johnson, one of two deputy public defenders appointed to represent Marsh, told Yolo Superior Court Judge Timothy Fall during a brief hearing Tuesday after requesting a two-week continuance.

Yolo County Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral, who is prosecuting the case, said he expects to get discovery to Marsh’s attorneys in the next couple of days.

Cabral said he recently spoke with Davis police detectives, and “there’s about 175 reports that they are finalizing.”

Fall set a pre-hearing conference date of July 16, at which time the attorneys will schedule a date for a preliminary hearing — a proceeding during which Fall will determine whether there is sufficient evidence for the case to proceed to trial.

Marsh is being held without bail at Yolo County Juvenile Hall while his case is pending. Wearing a gray dress shirt and striped tie — the result of a court ruling allowing him to appear in court in civilian clothing — Marsh consulted briefly with Johnson before being led in handcuffs out of the courtroom.
