Daniel Marsh's defense attorney sought sheaves of records from prosecutors as the case against the teen accused of killing a Davis couple in April continued Tuesday.
Clad in a gray dress shirt and dark slacks, Marsh sat in silent contrast to the other, older inmates in jail-issue striped jumpsuits during brief proceedings in Yolo Superior Court.
Marsh, 16, of Davis, appeared with his public defender, Ronald Johnson, for the morning hearing before Yolo Superior Court Judge Timothy L. Fall.
Assistant Chief Deputy District Attorney Michael Cabral said Tuesday that his office plans to turn over about 175 Davis police reports to Johnson by today.
Fall scheduled a July 16 hearing in Davis' first homicide since 2011 to set a date for a preliminary hearing.
Marsh faces murder allegations with special circumstances in the stabbing deaths of Oliver Northup, 87, and Claudia Maupin, 76, in their south Davis home. Davis police discovered their bodies April 14.
Marsh was arrested two months later, June 16, in Davis after an investigation that involved federal, state and local agencies. He has been charged as an adult.
Prosecutors call the killings "willful, deliberate and premeditated" and allege that Marsh "inflicted torture."
Marsh, who faces a life sentence if convicted, has pleaded not guilty to the charges. He remains held without bail at Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility in Woodland.
