Five years after cops found Danielle Marshall’s bloody body crumpled in her Powder Springs kitchen and her nine-month-old girl crawling around, a jury took 45 minutes to determine that Joshua Maurice Gibson killed her.
That’s according to Kim Isaza, spokeswoman for the Cobb County district attorney’s office, who said Friday that Gibson — the father of that baby girl — was found guilty of all charges he faced, including malice murder.
The pair met at a Goodwill in Powder Springs where they both worked.
Evans characterized the relationship between Gibson and Marshall as a “cycle of domestic violence ... that culminated in her death.”
The series of events that night, according to one of Gibson’s defense attorneys Thomas Griner, was that Gibson got worried Marshall hadn’t been responding to his calls and texts, so Gibson went to the house that night in January 2013. He claims he called 911 after she didn’t answer the door.
