On Tuesday, Daniel William Marsh, 16, was charged with two counts of first degree murder. Enhancements included using a knife and lying in wait. Therefore, Marsh will be tried as an adult according to the complaint filed by the Yolo County District Attorney’s office Tuesday.

Back in 2009, Daniel Marsh’s father, experiencing heart attack symptoms in the family’s West Davis home, attempted to drive to Sutter Davis Hospital. His son got in the car also.

On the way, Daniel Marsh’s father passed out. Just 12 years old at the time, Daniel Marsh took control of the vehicle and safely brought it to a halt.
