A Prince George's County man was convicted Wednesday of the murder of his ex-girlfriend and their two-year-old daughter.

Daron Boswell-Johnson was found guilty Tuesday for the first-degree murder of Neshante Davis and 2-year-old Chloe Davis-Green. He faces the possibility of life in prison without parole, according to a tweet from the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office.

In February 2016, officers found Davis unresponsive and suffering from a gunshot wound in the 1300 block of Palmer Road in Fort Washington, in the parking lot of a townhome community. Her young daughter was also found suffering from a gunshot wound. The toddler was still strapped into her car seat at the time of the shooting, according to police.

Davis died at the scene. Meanwhile, Davis-Green was rushed to a nearby hospital where she later died.

According to prosecutors, Daron Boswell-Johnson killed Davis, his ex-girlfriend, and Davis-Green, their daughter, in an effort to get out of paying $600 a month in child support.

In a taped confession, Boswell-Johnson admitted to fatally shooting his daughter and Davis-Green after he was arrested.
